Solvay Performance Polyamides starts production of engineering plastics in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. The company’s new facility is dedicated to the production of the Technyl range and was built within a few months in partnership with Chunil Engineering.

“This 10KT unit is fully operational and already serving our regional customers in the automotive and consumer goods markets,” says Marcos Curti, director of Americas for Solvay’s Performance Polyamides Global Business Unit. “Mexico attracts a growing number of global players, particularly from Europe and Asia. Many of them are Solvay’s longstanding customers who need a trustworthy local manufacturer of products they can fully trust.”

Solvay Performance Polyamides supports customers worldwide with services designed to reduce product-to-market lead times, according to the company. Services range from material characterization to application validation and include 3D printing of functional prototypes in Sinterline powders, predictive simulation with MMI Technyl Design2 and the testing of applications at fully equipped APT validation centers.
