Borouge and Borealis to share 40 years of experience and industry leading wire and cable solutions with the value chain.

 

Borouge and Borealis, the world’s leading providers of innovative, value creating plastics solutions for the Wire and Cable industry, are participating at the Wire Southeast Asia exhibition to be held at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) in Thailand from October 13 to 15, 2009.

 

Wire Southeast Asia is a key platform for progressive companies seeking to penetrate regional markets like Thailand, with its strong manufacturing base and mega infrastructure projects particularly in the transportation, telecommunications and public utility sectors, and developing Indochina markets such as Vietnam.

 

At the show, Borouge will demonstrate their ongoing commitment to investing in and providing innovative material solutions for communication and energy cable networks to their customers in the Southeast Asian region. Borouge will conduct a customer seminar to share the lessons learnt from their 50 years of experience in producing a comprehensive selection of products that integrate advanced research technology programmes with rapid product development capability.

 

Borouge is in a unique position to deliver value to the Wire and Cable industry in this region by providing access to Borealis’ extensive portfolio, which covers applications ranging from low, medium, high and extra high voltage cables to flame retardant cables, telecommunication cables and fibre optic cables. At the seminar, the companies will present their full range of innovative Wire and Cable solutions, including Borcell™, Casico™, Superclean™, Supersmooth™, Supercure™ and SuperTR™, based on their unique proprietary Borstar® and XLPE (cross-linkable polyethylene) technologies.

 

“We have a proven track record that is built on more than 50 years experience and know how, culminating in an extensive product range that has a solution for all Wire and Cable applications.” says Michael Bjorn, Vice President , of Borouge’s Business Unit for Wire & Cable. “Our innovations are inspired by our customers’ needs and we aim to be their preferred partner in providing solutions that add value throughout the value chain, both in the production and installation of wiring and cable networks, and extending the lifespan of these products,”

 

Notwithstanding the current economic climate, Borouge and Borealis are committed to investing in the future of this market. Borealis is currently investing in a new 350,000 tonnes per year low  pressure low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant in Stenungsund, Sweden – which will come online in 2010 – to  enhance the company’s capability to provide advanced materials for the Wire and Cable market. It builds upon the cross-linkable polyethylene (XLPE) capacity that came on stream in the second half of 2007. Borouge is also planning to build a low pressure low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant in Abu Dhabi specifically targeted at the Wire and Cable markets of the Middle East and Asia. This plant is scheduled for completion at t he end of 2013.
