Scott Bader recently announced that it has made a capital investment to expand production capacity for its range of Crestabond® and Crestomer® structural adhesives, Crystic® gelcoats, and formulated products. A new state-of-the-art mixer has been installed and is now fully operational at Scott Bader France, based in Amiens, which supplies customers worldwide.

This latest strategic investment of over €1.8 million (approximately $2.1 million) is reportedly in response to significant growth in customer demand for Scott Bader's products, as well as a continued long-term commitment to the composites industry and its manufacturing facility in France. The installation of the new mixer has increased production capacity by around 30%.

"To meet the growing demand and to continue to offer competitive lead times, this new state of the art mixer will be used to manufacture a wide range of Scott Bader products for a variety of industries including marine, construction and wind energy," said Jonathan Stowell, Scott Bader's group commercial director.
