Gurit Suprem Completes Strategic Relocation

17 November 2002

Gurit Suprem has relocated its thermoplastic composite manufacturing operations and offices.

The new location is a 3,000 sqm facility within the 41,800 sqm industrial premises of its parent company in Flurlingen near Schaffhausen, Switzerland. The new facility is located 30 km north of Gurit Suprem’s previous location in Winterthur. Tobias Bolliger, CEO of Gurit Suprem, stated, “We are very excited with Gurit’s decision to link our operations to an established polymer processing environment of the Group. It makes sense from an infrastructure as well as from a knowledge standpoint – the types of machinery and expertise needed for production are similar to Suprem’s operations.”

“This is a strategic decision,” Bolliger continues. “Given our growth over past years and the projections for 2003 and beyond, the new facilities provide us with plenty of space, additional capacity and the industrial infrastructure to streamline operations and expand our business.”
