In the middle of April the management of SILON ceremonially cut the tape at the newly opened Silon, LLC production plant in Peachtree City in the suburbs of Atlanta (Georgia, USA).
The goal was to move closer to our customers in the USA and South America. The total invested sum reached 20 million dollars, whereas half of this amount was invested during the first phase. This created 20 jobs, mostly in production, management and engineering. The new plant will specialise in producing technical compounds, which will be used by the automotive and construction industries. The current capacity of the production line is up to 7,000 tons of compounds per year. We expect to increase capacity in oncoming years to up to four production lines and another 30 jobs will also be created here by 2022.
