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.
