In a move that will further increase its presence in Australia, U.S.-based masterbatch supplier Ampacet Corporation has opened a new masterbatch production facility in Dandenong, Australia – near Victoria – that will manufacture custom colours and additives.

In a statement, Tarrytown, N.Y.-based Ampacet said the “state-of-the-art facility will produce custom color masterbatches and houses a new laboratory for product development and quality assurance.” Processing equipment at the facility includes two twin-screw extruders equipped with the latest control systems and semi-automatic bagging systems, the statement added.

“We have long had a significant presence in Australia and New Zealand,” said Yves Carette, Ampacet president and CEO. “Our new Dandenong facility enables us to better serve our customers’ needs.”

Ampacet operates a total of 24 manufacturing sites located in 17 countries. The firm manufactures custom colour, special effect, black, white, and specialty additive masterbatches for flexible and rigid extrusion processes and applications.
