NORDIC BUSINESS REPORT-August 30, 2016-Trelleborg announces expansion of offerings with new manufacturing line


Trelleborg AB (STO: TRELB.ST), a provider of engineered polymer solutions, announced on Monday that its offshore operation in Norway is expanding its production capability with a new manufacturing line.

This new production line will be built at Trelleborg's facility based in Krokstadelva, Norway and is planned to initially occupy 1,000 square metres. This initiative will add FBE powder coating and PP material options to the facilities' range of Vikotherm thermal insulation materials including rubber, silicone, glass syntactic polyurethane and solid polyurethane.

This manufacturing line is expected to be in production from Q1 2017.

According to the company, this addition will complement its current range of thermal insulation materials by adding Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) powder coating and polypropylene (PP) to its portfolio, solidifying the company's leading position as a subsea system thermal insulation provider.

Also, to establish and operate the new production line initiative, Trelleborg will strengthen its team with two new hires. Eirik Simonsen and Adam Jackson, who have a combined experience of over 40 years working with thermoplastics, will take on the roles of Thermal Insulation business group director and technical manager, respectively.

Trelleborg's offshore operation, using advanced polymer material technology, provides high integrity solutions for the harshest and most demanding offshore environments. As part of the company's Trelleborg Offshore & Construction business area, Trelleborg's offshore operation specialises in the development and production of polymer and syntactic foam based seismic, marine, buoyancy, cable protection and thermal insulation products, as well as rubber-based passive and active fire protection solutions for the offshore industry.
