2018

DuFor is constantly investing in its R&D lab facility’s to create innovative and sustainable polyester products and solutions together with its customers. In 2017 DuFor already invested in a new viscosity and color meter and a quality control database. Now a compounding and extrusion pilot plant is added to the R&D facility. With this new extrusion pilot plant, we can develop more high-value polyester specialties from recycled, post-consumer PET bottles. From the lab to the field, from a pilot project to large scale production. The new pilot line also opens the way to explore possibilities for recycled PET from other sources than post-consumer bottles.

DuFor and Ultrapolymers signed an agreement for the distribution of DuFor’s polyester specialties in the Injection Molding market, starting in the Benelux region. This cooperation will allow us to reach more customers in areas where we aren’t well represented yet. We’re not just going to use this cooperation as an additional sales channel, but also as a platform for exchanging our joint technical and commercial know-how. We are combining our experience concerning high quality virgin and recycled materials.

Since March 2016 DuFor received the internationally recognized quality management standard ISO 9001: 2015 certified . This means that all our business processes have been externally audited and measured against best practice. Two of the fundamental principles of the ISO certification are a focus on customers – understanding their requirements and exceeding their expectations – and continual review and improvement of everything a business does. It is for these reasons that we chose to pursue this certification.
