Five years after Indorama Ventures took it over and following a phase of strategic rebuilding lasting several years, polyester manufacturer Trevira is now moving into calmer waters.

“At around €250 million in 2015, turnover is similar to that of the previous year, however, sales volumes were by and large as forecast,” a press release said.

“Pleasing progress was recorded especially with business in specialties such as low-pill apparel fibres, PLA fibre types for technical applications, and flame retardant fibres and yarns,” the press release added.

According to Trevira, principal customers for flame retardant Trevira fibres and filaments continue to be manufacturers in Europe, especially in Italy, Germany and Turkey.

In China and the USA, Trevira is intensifying projects to network downstream stages in the supply chain and in particular, aims to grow sales of Trevira CS materials and enhance awareness of the Trevira CS brand.

In its corporate image, Trevira will in future, document its relationship with its majority owner Indorama Ventures and the company logo will bear the addition 'An Indorama Ventures Company'.

“The close collaboration with the parent company and sister firms is marked by mutual support in all sectors and is also reflected in projects such as joint appearances at trade fairs,” the company observed.

Trevira made an appearance at the European trade fairs like Heimtextil and Techtextil in Frankfurt, R+T in Stuttgart, Münchner Stoff Frühling, MoOD in Brussels and at the Independent Hotel Show in London.

It was also represented in the Middle East, in Asia and in the USA: at the Big Show in Oman, Hospital Build in Dubai and at Intertextile in Shanghai, where the Trevira CS China Day once again took place.

In addition, Trevira brought together for the fourth time European weavers and North American textile suppliers at the Trevira CS Jobber Day in New York.

For 2016, Trevira plans to make a first appearance at Orgatec in Cologne, an opportunity to present the wide range of Trevira CS textiles for the workplace environment.

At this year's Heimtextil, Trevira will have a new stand concept, the framework of which involves seven so-called 'Labs', which stand for product innovation and development.

Five Labs are based on the entries for the 2016 Trevira CS fabric competition and further submissions of customer fabrics, reflecting current market trends.

While, Lab no. 6 is devoted to fabrics in Trevira hybrid yarns with low-melt components and in Lab no. 7 visitors will learn about the services on offer from Trevira laboratory services. (AR)
