RTP Company Announces Long Fiber Thermoplastics Availability at China Facility

14 January 2007

RTP has added multiple long fibre-reinforced thermoplastic (LFRT) production lines at its Suzhou, China manufacturing facility, based on various resin systems including nylon and polypropylene.

""The new LFRT lines will support our rapidly-growing automotive and industrial customer base in China along with offering long fibre technology to other markets for applications requiring higher strength at lighter weights,"" said Joe Kluck, Executive Vice President at RTP Company.

RTP Company's 16,000 square meter (170,000 square feet) manufacturing plant in Suzhou, China was opened in December 2005. RTP Company significantly expanded its LFRT capabilities earlier this year with the opening of a long fibre facility near its Winona, Minnesota headquarters. RTP Company also installed additional long fibre lines at several of its worldwide operations in 2006 and introduced a broader long fibre product offering.
