We proudly present: The new OL image booklet

We have finished the new OL image booklet which saw the light of the day a short while ago.

With this booklet we have decided to strike out a new direction consciously by using this new, modern layout. We put great emphasis on the power of the image and - in additon - reduced the quantity of text on the most significant points.

The Leadership an Cooperation Mission Statement on the title page is building the heart of this brochure.

We hope you enjoy reading the booklet wich you are able to download as a PDF document below.

New Force Majeure from Ascent for PA 6.6

New Force Majeure from Ascent for PA 6.6

A new Force Majeure of the PA 6.6-market, which is keyed-up anyway, came up: On 10 July 2018 Ascend Performance Materials (Hourson, Texas/USA) had to declare Force Majeure for all base polymers, compounds and fribres of PA 6.6.

A fire in the plant of the company in Pensacola, Florida, has tied up the polymerization unities, while the duration of the FM remained unclear.

As declared in a customer-letter, all contractural agreed delivery quantities were allocated with immediate effect.

This means in total that half lof all factories in Europe and a Third in the USA are not available at the moment. Summarised, this is comes up tp more than a quarter of the worldwide capacities.

Important announcement: new Forje Majeure of Total in Gonfreville

We herewith would like to inform you about a new case of Force Majeure (FM) for deliveries of PE-HD out of a production site of the company Total in Gonfreville, France.

As stated in a customer letter as of 22 June, it came to an "unexpected technical breakdown" after a maintenance during the process of restarting the production line. Therefore one would not be able to fulfil the appropriate delivery obligations.

It was not possible to receive any information about the duration of the FM. However, they are working on a solution of the problems under high pressure.

Important announcement to Force Majeure

Dear Business Partners,

at the beginning of this year, we informed you about possible raw material shortage of PA and PP. Based on this information, we received many inquiries from our customers regarding supply securtiy of the materials we purchase. During the announcement of the Force Majeure we started to prove and compare all existing orders and blanket orders with our material inventories and we can inform you with result that currently the security of supply is given in full range. Due to the large number of materials we use for more than 25.000 different aricles, the detailed examination took more time.

For further questions your contact person in the customers service is at your disposal.
