Dutch manufacturer Royal DSM announced Wednesday that it is planning to modernize and add new capabilities to Evansville, IN compounding facility that increase the site’s capacity for new advanced materials like bio-based thermoplastics.  

The company said it initiated the project in response to increased demand for advanced material solutions for electrification, metal replacement, and lightweighting for a number of industries, including Akulon PA6/PA66 and Stanyl PA46.

“As demand from our customers for sustainable sources of advanced materials grows, so does our need to invest,” Jud Gibson, Vice President Commercial Americas at DSM Engineering Plastics, said in a company press release. “The expansion of our North American operations helps to ensure we have the right tools to meet this need today and in the future.”

During the expansion, new production technologies will be installed to increase efficiency and the sustainability of the facility. 

DSM completed its $165.5 million purchase of specialty dairy solutions firm Koninklijke CSK Food Enrichment C.V. (CSK) on December 30. The deal expands its portfolio of products, including taste, texture, and bio-preservation solutions for semi-hard cheeses like Gouda and Edam, according to the company. Under the terms of the transaction, DSM will take on CSK’s dairy application center and a fermentation facility in the Netherlands.
