HOUSTON, April 12, 2022 – Inhance Technologies, a leading international provider of sustainable specialty chemicals and materials technologies, announces a significant advancement in its manufacturing capabilities with the expansion of their site in Germany.
Centrally located in Hessen, this expanded capacity serves a large geographical area where many customers and supply chain partners are located. The five-fold increase in manufacturing capacity also enables the company to shorten delivery times with existing and new customers and expand the range of markets and products.
“The scale of our ambition is only matched by the need for sustainable barrier packaging. To accelerate and expand our efforts, this substantial capacity expansion enables us to increase the efficiency of our systems resulting in a shortened lead and delivery time for customers.” said Dietmar Emig, Managing Director of Inhance Technologies GmbH.
The boosted capacity for Enkase™, Inhance Technologies’ fully recyclable barrier technology for packaging, and DuraBloc™, its next-generation barrier performance for fuel systems, furthers the company’s continuous efforts to expand its sustainable solutions globally.
“As a leading global provider of polymer material science solutions, we are always innovating and advancing technology, and this exemplifies our mission. We are excited this new addition of manufacturing capacity enhances our ability to serve more customers, and optimizes delivery times,” added Andrew Thompson, Inhance Technologies’ President and CEO.
The expansion of the German site in Q4 of 2021 is followed by the organization’s second add-on acquisition of Advance Research Chemicals, Inc., a world-class producer of specialty chemicals and materials used in a wide range of high-value applications. Inhance Technologies has also made significant investments to support its growth, including the opening of a new headquarters and Global Science and Technology Center in Houston, significantly expanding its facility in St. Louis, and developing multiple new, innovative technologies.
