ThyssenKrupp Materials North America has been selected by DuPont Engineering Polymers to distribute Vespel polyimide stock shapes in Canada.

ThyssenKrupp has an integrated network of service centers located across North America, offering a wide variety of plastic production materials, precision-processing services, and complete supply chain and production support solutions.
