Luxembourg-based Orion Engineered Carbons S.A. will expand capacity of carbon black at its Sweden-based Norcarb Engineered Carbons AB plant. The expansion is in response to growing demand from the fiber, adhesives and sealants, and wire and cables markets.
“The expansion of capacity in Malmö is one more step in Orion’s rapid realignment of our portfolio toward higher value added specialty and technical rubber applications,” said Jack Clem, CEO, Orion.
“Products from Malmö will primarily support our customers in Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. This action is a reflection of the high confidence of our customers in Orion’s products and technical support capabilities.
