One of Europe’s leading manufacturers of specialist polymers and chemicals, Bitrez, has invited resin producers to use its UK-based production facilities as the REACH 31 May deadline for registering chemical substances manufactured or imported from outside the EU above one tonne per year passes.
Already fully REACH compliant, Bitrez’s offer will be seen by many in the industry as welcome news owing to unresolved issues over Brexit - including how REACH will impact businesses once the UK leaves Europe.
With 20 per cent of its business being toll conversion/contract manufacturing, the company is no stranger to supplying resins to major players in the industry for packaging coatings, automotive refinish coatings and aerospace businesses in Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.
Dominic Hopwood, Bitrez’s Composites Resin Sales Manager, says: “With trade agreements and disagreements, the need for domestic manufactured products for Europe has never been greater in the resin market. Add to this the additional pressure from regulatory bodies such as REACH and a drive to eliminate or reduce specific materials, and it is clear that there is a real need for specialist resin producers, like Bitrez with decades of experience in satisfying production demands through toll conversion, development or co-development.”
Bitrez offers toll conversion in both its UK manufacturing facilities as well as technical support when required. With a diverse range of capabilities over both sites including COMAH [Seveso] compliance and ISO certification [ISO 9001/14001/18001].
