Nubiola Increases its UMB Manufacturing Capacity


07/11/2008

“NUBIOLA CONSOLIDATES THE EXPANSION OF ITS GLOBAL ULTRAMARINES MANUFACTURING CAPACITY” EXTENDED VERSION
Nubiola Inorganic Pigments has successfully finalized the expansion of its global Ultramarines manufacturing capacity. The upgraded capacity allows Nubiola to produce 16,000 tpa of Ultramarine pigments, including Blues, Violets and Pinks, which is 25% more than before. This expansion clearly reinforces Nubiola’s position as the world’s largest producer of Ultramarines and the only company with more than one manufacturing plant. Nubiola produces Ultramarine pigments in four countries, Spain, Romania, Colombia and India.

“With this investment we have demonstrated Nubiola’s strategic commitment to be ‘the responsible leader’ of the Ultramarines market” says Nubiola’s Global Marketing Manager Alex Capuz.

The Ultramarines market has experienced unprecedented turbulence since one of the historical producers decided to shut down its most important manufacturing plant located in the UK in September 2007. The short notice between the announcement and the effective closure of that plant created a sudden product shortage in the market that Nubiola tried its best to make up for by manufacturing at 100% of its existing capacity available at that time. However, in order to better assist Ultramarines users, in October 2007 Nubiola announced a plan to increase its worldwide manufacturing capacity to reach 16,000 tpa in Q4’08. This expansion is now in place and working at full speed.

“We really expect that all our efforts made to change that difficult supply situation will be appreciated by our customers from now on. Customer satisfaction is our final goal, thus our service standard is now better aligned to meet their expectations. We do believe this is very good news for the market” emphasizes Alex Capuz.

The above mentioned investment and the service improvement have been the major focus of Nubiola in the last 18 months, but not the only ones. Product innovation is another key driver of Nubiola’s global Ultramarines leadership. The technical program to develop new added value solutions (products and applications) continues. On one hand, the market penetration of the latest commercial novelties is growing at fast speed i.e. the Nubiperf FCP range -Ultramarines specifically designed for sensitive to odor and taste Plastics applications- and the Nubicoat range -Ultramarines specifically designed for Paints&Coatings-. On the other hand, several R&D projects are reaching their final stage before commercialization. “Our vast expertise in Ultramarines technology allows us to create more added value solutions for our customers in many different industries”, claims Alex Capuz.
