UPR manufacturing operations
AOC completes the acquisition of the Unsaturated Polyester Resin (UPR) manufacturing operations in Ústí nad Labem (Czech Republic). This footprint extension will allow AOC to improve service and logistics to its customers in central and eastern Europe as well as in Germany and will make new products (e.g. products based on recycled PET) available for customers around Europe, according to the company.
The UPR plant at the Spolchemie site in Ústí nad Labem is located 70 km southeast of Dresden, Germany. In addition to state-of-the-art UPR production equipment, the plant has unique capabilities for manufacturing green resins based on recycled PET, according to AOC. AOC, Kaprain and Spolchemie signed an agreement to transfer the operations to AOC on October 15, 2020. The transfer is reportedly complete and fully effective.
