Hamburg-based engineering plastics distributor K.D. Feddersen has been named the official distributor for Trinseo’s TPE, TPU materials and bioplastics in Germany and in all major countries in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe. The appointment is effective per January 2021.
Back in June 2017, raw materials supplier Trinseo, seeking to boost its presence in the performance plastics segment, acquired Italy-based API Applicazioni Plastiche Industriali S.p.A.
That deal expanded Trinseo’s portfolio to include soft-touch polymers such as TPEs, thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs), EVA-based compounds and two-component PU, and included a range of bioplastic materials, as well.
The agreement considerably broadens and complements K.D. Feddersen’s TPE offering, said managing director Stephan Schnell, who called Trinseo an ‘important supplier for … our customers' 2K applications’.
