Yparex production transferred

17 Sep 2013


The Dutch Resin Technology acquired Yparex from DSM Engineering Plastics in 2011 and has since completed the transition of Yparex production to its compounding plant.

Yparex offers a range of extrudable tie-layer resins for a variety of high-tech applications. After the acquisition, hospital help Resin invested in a new ISO 9001 and GMP certified compounding plant at its manufacturing location in Enschede, patient the Netherlands. The new plant includes reactive extrusion facilities based on the latest principles of safe, clean and green engineering. Subsequently, production of the Yparex portfolio was gradually transferred to Enschede in close cooperation with Yparex? customers, to safeguard all existing product and process approvals. This transition was completed in June 2013.

Resin CEO Frans Haafkens, says: ?The new Yparex facility is a significant extension of Resin?s technology platform, which truly substantiates Resin?s and Yparex? claim that technological innovation is part of our DNA. The new facilities also incorporate reactive extrusion options for grafting MAH and other molecules. All in all, it provides a fantastic platform for further product development together with our customers and development partners.?

Wouter van den Berg, Yparex General Manager, adds: ?These past few years have been very rewarding. Working in close cooperation with our suppliers, customers and other partners, we managed to ensure a smooth transition. The supply chain remained un-interrupted throughout, and we effected several improvements in our processes. At the same time we continued to develop new products and services for our key markets, many of which we will showcase at the K-show this year. We look forward to welcoming existing and potential business partners to our booth in Hall 7.?
