Sweden’s Trelleborg Investing in Bulgarian LSR Unit’s Expansion
Sweden-headquartered Trelleborg group said on Wednesday it is making further investment in its Bulgarian unit for advanced liquid silicone rubber (LSR) injection molding solutions.
The investment in support of the technology at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions LSR facility in Pernik, in southwestern Bulgaria, is part of the group’s commitment to developing its LSR injection molding manufacturing footprint, Trelleborg said in a statement.
“Boasting compliance with ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System, in particular, the Bulgarian facility will focus on components for sensitive food and beverage applications,” Trelleborg said.
Trelleborg utilized an option from 2011 to acquire the outstanding 50% of the shares in the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions LSR operation in Bulgaria in April this year. The price of the transaction was not disclosed.
“This latest investment in the Pernik production facility will increase manufacturing floor space by 150% and will more than double the capacity of the tool room,” according to the statement.
The expansion will allow future growth in small- to medium-sized technical LSR, especially over molded parts for food, beverage, baby care, sanitary, industrial and automotive electronics markets.
The facility in Pernik is one of three sites where Trelleborg Sealing Solutions specializes in LSR injection molding. The other two sites are in Switzerland and the U.S.
Trelleborg is a global engineering group focused on polymer technology. It provides engineered polymer solutions that seal and protect critical applications in demanding environments. The group had some 15,800 employees in 2013.
