Perstorp, a global producer of trimethylolpropane (TMP), says it is increasing capacity to meet growing demand from the European market. TMP is used to enhance the properties of numerous materials.

“The capacity expansion is fully in line with Perstorp’s ambition to further strengthen our position in the polyols market. TMP is a key product in our polyol portfolio, which is a core business within Perstorp,” says Filip Tauson, global vice president, polyols at Perstorp. “This product line has been instrumental in the development of Perstorp as an international company and we are happy to expand our position further to be able to serve a strong demand from the market.”

The expansion development takes place in Vercelli, Italy. Perstorp’s own TMP production sites are located in China, Sweden and the United States.
