Swedish plastics engineer, Trelleborg, recently opened an applied technologies facility in Retford, Nottinghamshire, to grow its polyurethane manufacturing capabilities.
The new plant will be a Centre of Excellence for Trelleborg’s diversified polyurethane component manufacturing, bringing together experience, innovation and technology under one roof.
Ulf Berghult, Trelleborg’s CFO, and Councillor Jim Anderson, Bassetlaw District Council, cut the ribbon to officially open the facility.
Berghult said: “By combining our local expertise from several Trelleborg facilities in the area into one, we will reduce our footprint and environmental impact on the local area. Our investment into this facility demonstrates our long-standing commitment to accelerating performance for our customers both locally and globally.”
