In 2018, it was certain: Lifocolor sarl's plant in Bellignat, France, had reached its capacity limit. In order to be able to continue to meet the increased customer demands for high-quality masterbatches in the future, the expansion of production and development capacities was decided and implemented. For the new plant relocation, the machinery was expanded with a new twin screw extruder. A further production line will be put into operation at the beginning of 2021.
We have planned our new factory with machinery in such a way that our capacities will double. We are now able to produce 2,000 tonnes of masterbatches per year. This will enable us to meet the growing demand and even expand our production if necessary," explains David Bouix, the new Plant Manager of Lifocolor sarl, who took over the responsibilities of the unexpectedly deceased, long-standing director José Pereira when the new headquarters went into operation.
