Trelleborg inaugurates new polyurethane facility in Retford, England

Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation inaugurated its new purpose built facility in Retford, England, further enhancing its polyurethane manufacturing capabilities.

“The new facility will be a Center of Excellence for Trelleborg’s diversified polyurethane component manufacturing, bringing together experience, innovation and technology under one roof,” the company said in a press release.

Ulf Berghult, CFO, Trelleborg Group and Councillor Jim Anderson, Bassetlaw District Council, took part in a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the facility.

“By combining our local expertise from several Trelleborg facilities in the area into one, we will reduce our footprint and environmental impact on the local area,” said Berghult. “Our investment into this facility demonstrates our long-standing commitment to accelerating performance for our customers both locally and globally.”

The facility in Retford consolidates four sites; one in Retford, two in Coventry and one in Knaresborough, into a single facility. Constructed using lean manufacturing principles and with a focus on environmental efficiency, the 7,225 square meters / 77,765 square feet facility will manufacture the current product portfolio of Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation.
