October 28, 2016 | Sukano: Global expansion

Sukano, a leader in the development and production of additive and colour masterbatches for polyester and specialty resins, announces that it is expanding globally, with investments in all production sites worldwide. These investments are being made in response to increased demand of the company’s products and services. At the same time, the company is using this expansion as a platform to launch its new corporate identity.

Sukano is a development partner for customers in several markets and applications, including thick and thin films, and bottles and containers. To further increase flexibility of product development and provide the highest quality support to customers in these areas, the company is investing in a Karo IV stretching machine from Brückner and a multilayer coextrusion flat film line from Dr. Collin. Both machines will be installed at Sukano’s global research and development center in Switzerland. The company will be able to produce multilayered films as well as orient monoaxial and biaxial films in-house for customers worldwide.

In the Asia Pacific region, Sukano is seeing very rapid growth in its operations. As a result, the company is building a new 2,100m² warehouse for raw materials and finished goods at its plant in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, which will allow the company to grow sustainably. Sukano is also installing new analytical equipment in the laboratory at the facility. This is intended to help to continuously improve the technical service provided to local customers and keep operations up to date. Business is rapidly growing in the Americas as well. At its facility in Duncan, South Carolina, USA, Sukano will increase its warehouse space while adding additional extruder. This will increase production capacity by more than 30% by the end of this year.
