DSM expands production capacity in Germany


Royal DSM has announced the operational launch of a new state-of-the-art polyester production facility in Meppen, Germany.

With the expansion of its production capacity of its sustainable liquid polyester technology and other speciality resins, the company aims strengthening of its leadership in sustainable, innovative resins and circular economy solutions. 

This completed expansion follows the strong growth in the can and coil coatings segment in recent years, with growth driven by the market shift from epoxy-based packaging coatings toward new more sustainable bisphenol (BPA)-free solutions.

DSM’s new facility will enable greater supply flexibility and security, the ability to meet growing customer demand and address customer needs, as well as improving DSM’s own inventory management and positively contributing to DSM’s working capital management. 

In addition, the investment in new technology underlines DSM’s commitment to the production of high-quality products and economic incentives in the region of Meppen, which links the economic areas of northern and central Europe.
