Elkem: relocation of a silicone production unit in France
Manufacturer of silicone materials
Elkem is setting up a new silicone production unit near Lyon and plans to start production at the end of the year. It will be dedicated to the manufacture of organo-functional silicones, a specialty produced until then only in Asia, and which represents 20% of sales in the silicone industry. It also houses a devolatilization unit essential for serving regulated markets with high-purity products.
