Jens Gieseke, MEP, emphasizes importance of family businesses such as Baerlocher  A high-ranking politician visited Baerlocher´s production site in Lingen, Germany, on March 17th, 2017: Jens Gieseke, a member of the European Parliament, received a first-hand look at the company. With almost 1,200 employees, Baerlocher is a leading global vendor of plastic additives, as well as a family business with a management team and a history that spans more than 190 years.

Company CEO Arne Schulle welcomed the parliamentarian, along with plant manager Jürgen Bähr; deputy plant manager and operations manager Christian Schulze Severing; environmental and quality system manager Wilfried Gecks; and Bernt Kastein, chairman of the worker council.

Schulle pointed out that he would naturally make employees aware of the crucial importance of Europe to the global success of the company while emphasizing that their jobs were closely linked to it. Baerlocher operates globally and has invested heavily in new production capacity worldwide, as well as in research and development at its headquarters. Additives from Baerlocher enable large players in the global plastics industry to tailor their products specifically to particular markets and applications.

But Schulle also cautioned that acquiring raw materials in the oleochemistry sector (market segment) could become difficult. As an example, he mentioned imminent disruptions as a result of new political decisions relating to the sector of animal fats. Due to government subsidies, animal fats will soon be burned in car engines instead of contributing to a higher added value in industrial production. Having to import palm oil to Baerlocher’s site in Lingen in order to replace animal fats would be counterproductive to the company and could jeopardize up to 20 sustainable, competitive and well-paid jobs in Lingen.

Baerlocher with brilliant performance at Feiplastic in Brazil Feiplastic 2017, the biggest exhibition for the plastics industry in South America, took place in São Paulo, Brazil, from April 3-7. The biennial event was held at the new Expo Center Norte, one of the most modern pavilions in Brazil.

As a leading player in the additive sector in Brazil and throughout most of Latin America, Baerlocher presented itself with a prestigious stand of 110 square meters at a prominent location. The booth was inspired by the company´s appearance at the K-fair in Duesseldorf last October.

To provide international visitors with information on the latest products of the company in the Argentine and Peruvian market, Baerlocher do Brazil invited the teams of the group companies Lestar Quimica Argentina and Cia Quimica Peru.

The Brazilian market has been in a recession since the end of 2015 and PVC consumption fell below 1 million tons, primarily due to greatly reduced construction activity. As a result, the visitors were mainly interested in cost-efficient solutions that would enable them to remain competitive. Baerlocher’s products offer a wide range of options in this regard.

Another field of interest was the transition from lead to Ca-based stabilizers. While the process has already been completed in Brazil, visitors from other countries wanted to benefit from Baerlocher's extensive experience in this area and to learn about global regulations.

The meetings also indicated the significantly increased interest in stearates and fatty acids offered by Baerlocher as well as in additive solutions for the recycling sector.

“The Feiplastic once again showed the confidence of the Brazilian plastics industry in overcoming the present difficulties so it can rebound in 2017/2018,” said Juarez da Silva Costa, president of Baerlocher do Brazil.
