Press release date: May 11, 2017
Specialty Films Manufacturer Places Focus on Production-Optimizing Processes
Malvern (USA)– Following a successful debut last year, Infiana will once again be represented at SAMPE Seattle 2017, the largest and most important trade show for the composites industry in North America. The specialty films manufacturer can be found at Booth F36 at the Washington State Convention Center from May 23nd to 24th . “SAMPE is the meetup for the North American composites market. Infiana represents innovation and engineered customer solutions – attributes with which we are happy to support our partners in the growing North American market in particular,“ notes Markus Peske, Vice President Composites at Infiana.
Trend Themes: Sustainability and Weight Reduction
Sustainability and weight reduction have become increasingly more important for customers in the composites market. Infiana has pursued these topics for a number of years, and has further developed in recent months through intensive research activity. “Flex^PLAS® and Paper Replacement are examples of products that we will be presenting at SAMPE. With them, our customers in composites manufacturing can achieve notably higher optimization potentials in production processes for components and semi-finished products,” remarks Markus Peske, Vice President Composites.
Expanded Application Opportunities for Flex^PLAS®
In particular, visitors to Infiana’s booth can look forward to new and further expanded application opportunities for the company’s flagship product Flex^PLAS® , developed in conjunction with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM. “In adding further characteristics and embossing designs to the Flex^PLAS® portfolio, we have created even more individualized application opportunities for customers,“ explains Soheila Salehi-Schneider, Project Leader Flex^PLAS® at Infiana.
New Sales Organization Established
There have also been changes in Infiana’s sales organization. As a result, the composites market is now one of five key markets for the specialty films manufacturer, which has been globally oriented since the beginning of 2017. This allows Infiana to react to customer requirements in a more targeted manner: ”With its new sales organization, Infiana underlines its status as the ‘Premium Innovator’. This allows us to react to market needs even faster and more efficiently. We are a problem solver for our customers around the world, a service we can better offer as a result of this restructuring,“ says Markus Peske, Vice President Composites.
