Trevira: good business year in 2018

The manufacturer of polyester fibers Trevira GmbH, Bobingen/Germany, can look back on a good year 2018. Despite the globally dismal growth forecasts, massive increase in the price of raw materials, additives, energy, and transport as well as various trade conflicts, the business has stabilized at a good level.
In 2018, sales amounted to approx. €235 million. Pleasing progress was recorded especially with business in specialties such as flame retardant fibers and yarns (Trevira CS) and bicomponent fibers. Due to the general economic conditions, sales of low-pill apparel fibers fell short of expectations. Sales of retardant fibers remained stable. Sales of flame retardant filament yarns could even be increased. The principal customers for flame retardant fibers and filaments continue to be producers in Europe (especially in Italy and Germany).
At the Heimtextil on January 8-11, 2019 in Frankfurt/Germany, Trevira presents new developments in the field of recycling and sustainability, such as flame retardant filament yarns made from recycled PET bottles.
