Sirmax to open US manufacturing plant

20/01/2015

Sirmax will invest $25.6 million into its new Anderson, IN operations, building a 140,000 square-foot (13,000 mq) facility on a 26.3 acre (106,000 mq) portion starting from greenfield. Expected to be operational by October 2015, the company’s first North American location will serve as a strategic logistical location for its automotive and appliance customers, which includes a U.S.-based client that signed a $20 million annual contract with Sirmax late last year. The company anticipates producing 20,000 tons of polypropylene compound in 2016, with an annual turnover expected at $35 million, to reach 60,000 tons by 2020, creating 50 new jobs.

“I would like to thank Governor Mike Pence and the state of Indiana, the city of Anderson and the IEDC for the warm welcome and the high professionalism that they always showed in this process,” said Massimo Pavin, chief executive officer of Sirmax. “This is what made the difference in our location choice for our first U.S. production plant in Indiana, in the heart of the automotive sector. My wish, that I would like to share with the Sales Director of Sirmax North America Lorenzo Ferro, is that this is only the first of many steps to increase the productive capacity of the Anderson plant.”

With this investment Sirmax consolidates it global presence, becoming the ideal glocal partner, offering both the global presence and the local service and assistance to its main customers in western Europe, Turkey and North Africa from Cittadella and Tombolo (Italy), eastern Europe from Kutno (Poland), South America from Jundiaì (Brasil) and North America from Anderson (United States).

Founded in 1964 under the name SIRTE, Sirmax produces and supplies plastic compounds and resins used in the automotive, home appliance, electrical and furniture industries. As the second largest independent polypropylene compounder in Europe, the company’s products include polypropylene compounds used in automobile interiors, exteriors, under-the-hood as well as in household appliances including components for washing machines, dishwashers, dryers, refrigerators and freezers. Launching a global strategy in 2005, Sirmax operates five manufacturing and sales facilities across the globe, including three in Italy, a facility in Poland and a facility in Brazil, in addition to sales subsidiaries in Germany, France and Spain.
