FiberVisions a/s and Tel Rad Cuyo (TRC) announced that they have formed a joint venture for the production, marketing and sales of polypropylene fibers in South America.

As part of the transaction, FiberVisions a/s purchased 50% of TRC, the largest merchant market producer of polypropylene fibers in South America with a plant located in the San Juan province of Argentina.

This joint venture will provide FiberVisions with quality local manufacturing assets and product development capability enabling us to provide even better service to our current customers in the region.”

“We believe that the venture with FiberVisions will give our customers access to the best technology and the highest quality fibers,” stated Dr. Guillermo Kraves, President of Tel Rad Cuyo. “South America is a high-growth region of the world and we will be investing to support that demand.”
