Baerlocher has established Baerlocher Kimya in Istanbul to provide further local support for the growing PVC market in Turkey. The new company would focus its attentions on the PVC window profile and pipe markets in the region, said Baerlocher, a leading supplier of additives for the plastics industry. “By establishing Baerlocher Kimya, we have again demonstrated our consistent policy of being local in key markets for plastics, and this is an exciting addition to the Baerlocher family”, said Arne Schulle, CEO, Baerlocher group of companies. The Istanbul company would be led by managing director Mustafa Ataman and technical director Bekir Ergün. Munich-based Baerlocher said it would continue its long standing partnership with Dolunay Kimya, which would continue to represent the company in the other PVC markets of Turkey.
