MERY, France—Axson Group S.A.S., which provides high performance polymer formulation, will open a technical center in Mery in order to expand the company's expertise in polyurethane elastomer formulations.
The company said that its new, state-of-the-art Axson Merylithe technical center will focus on both isocyanate formulation and systems.
Axson acquired Merylithe S.A.S., a subsidiary of Trentesaux-Brochier, last August. The renamed subsidiary, Axson Merylithe, is headquartered in Mery.
“By working to expand Axson Merylithe, we are complying with the Group's objective to offer our customers every type of formulation solution, whether complex or functional,” said Patrick Blosse, vice-president of sales and marketing at Axson Technologies. “Our expertise in formulations combined with Axon Merylithe's great flexibility will enable us to push back boundaries and improve product performance.”
Neither the cost of the project, nor the timeline for completion, was released.
“Axson Merylithe will enable our Axson Technologies Business Unit to develop certain niche markets and continue to provide high-performance applications in the elastomer market,” Axson Group President Charles Churet said in a statement.
