Lanxess to invest in its Port Jérôme facility in France

Lanxess is investing in its production site for high-performance rubber in Port Jérôme, France. The company plans to invest up to 30 million Euro by 2012 to further enhance the facility’s productivity and energy efficiency.

High-performance rubbers neodymium-polybutadiene and solution styrene-butadiene are produced at the site. These rubber grades are used primarily for the production of “green tires”. 



Axel C. Heitmann, chairman of the board of management at Lanxess AG said, “The production of high performance rubbers in Port Jérôme plays a key role in our global strategy. We support global megatrends with our innovations and technologies. A particular focus here is solutions for sustainable mobility”.
