Huber's Fire Retardant Additives business announces capacity expansion

Thursday, 29 September 2016

The Fire Retardant Additives business unit, part of the Huber Engineered Materials division of J.M. Huber Corporation, announces a 10% capacity expansion of "Martinal" fine precipitated alumina trihydrate at its newly acquired Martinswerk plant in Germany.

The additional capacity is projected for completion by the third quarter of 2017. This addition follows a 20% capacity expansion in precipitated alumina trihydrate just completed at Huber’s Bauxite, Arkansas facility in the United States.

Meeting increasing demand

The investment by Huber in additional capacity in Bergheim commences only seven months after the February acquisition of Martinswerk GmbH, including the joint venture interest in Magnifin Magnesiaprodukte GmbH & Co KG.  "This investment is the first in a series of expansions planned for Bergheim as we begin implementing our longer term strategy for the business,” says Jerry Bertram, Vice President and General Manager of Huber’s FRA business unit.
"The capacity expansion is part of our ongoing global growth plan and underlines Huber’s commitment to the non-halogenated fine precipitated fire retardant market and enables us to meet increasing demand from our valued customers,” adds Martin Schulting, Managing Director of Huber’s FRA European operations.
