Gurit Wins PET Core Supply Contract for China

19 November 2010

As a result of supplying PET core materials manufactured in Europe to a European wind energy customer this year, Gurit has now won a major contract to supply PET structural core materials for wind energy applications in China.

Starting in 2011, the two-year contract is worth around 3-5 million Euros.

Gurit is currently installing a PET extruder in Tianjin, PR China, in order to manufacture a standard range as well as kitted PET structural core material for the Chinese wind energy market locally in China. The installation of the new equipment, scheduled to be finished before the end of the year, will allow Gurit to produce the same quality and grades of PET core materials in and for China as we are currently producing in Europe, says Rudolf Gerber, General Manager of Wind Energy at Gurit.
