After the fire on 1 August 2015, Addapt experienced some really hectic times. Thanks to the help of befriended facilities and the motivation and determination of their entire team, the additive producer was able to restart part of their production after only two weeks. Currently, the offices are situated in Helmond and production is temporary in Hapert, more than 40 km apart. The company now announced their plan for the future: building a completely new production facility with more storage and production capacity.

The architect has finalized the drawings, the contractor has been appointed to the project, storage tanks and reactors are ordered and within a couple of days construction of the new facility will start. It will be located in Helmond, although at a different address as before. The new production facility will be filled with 42 storage tanks of 35.000 litres, three 25.000 litre reactors, four 10.000 litre reactors, four 5.000 litre reactors, one 1.500 litre reactor and a 60 litre pilot plant. The estimated capacity will be more than 75.000 MT/annum. There will also be a well-equipped Application laboratory (600 m2), an Analytical laboratory (100 m2) as well as a laboratory for Research and Development (400 m2). Together with the offices the new facility covers about 17.725 m2.

Addapt expects construction to be finished in June 2016. Their offices will be first to move and production will start a little later due to the complexity of the installation process. Next year at this very moment The company hopes to be fully operational from their new site, producing even more products to meet the ever-growing global demand for environmentally friendly additives.
