At Brasilplast 2011 (São Paolo, Brazil – 09/13 May) RadiciGroup is presenting its engineering plastics product portfolio to the South American market: not only traditional engineering polymers and copolymers – PA 6 and 66 (Radilon® - Radiflam® - Heramid®), PET and PBT (Raditer®), TPEs (Heraflex®) and POM (Heraform®) – but also the most recent developments and innovations. The focus will be on new items for the automotive sector, eco-compatible engineering plastics and PA66 metal and light alloy replacements.

RadiciGroup Plastics has been operating in Brazil since 1997, when its production site, Radici Plastics Ltda, was set up in Araçariguama.

“South America is a very attractive market for us,” said Danilo Micheletti, RadiciGroup Plastics COO for North America, South America and China. “20% of our Plastics Area sales come from this geographical area. In 2010 Radici Plastics Ltda recorded a sales increase of 35% compared to the prior year, while the Brazilian economy had one of the highest growth rates in the world: 7.5%. The plastics sector is still growing at a good rate, continuing the trend of the last quarter 2010. Although we are concerned about the constant rise in raw materials prices, which has been going on for months now, we are optimistic about the future. We expect that the evolution of engineering plastics in the South American market is moving to a new stage. It’s changing from a developing sector to a one increasingly oriented to high-tech specialties. And our organization can efficiently meet these specialized needs.”

Global presence in the market, tried and tested know-how, high technology and quality. What is more, technological development support and vertically integrated nylon production. These strengths make RadiciGroup a reliable partner for all its customers.
