DIAB says that it has invested in the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) core material for the wind energy sector.

The company plans to open a new PET structural foam production line in its existing plant in Zhangjiagang, China.

‘The investment in China is the consequence of several multiyear contracts signed with major China based wind OEMs over the last couple of months,’ said Tobias Hahn, CEO at Diab Group. ‘The plan is to start supplying the local Chinese market from the new extruder in the fourth quarter 2021.’

DIAB has also reportedly invested in the production of PET core foam in the US, Sweden, India and Italy.
