Biesterfeld Plastic: organisation of internal structures
A leading international distributor of plastics and additives, Biesterfeld Plastic is adapting its business unit structure. To drive forward its strategic transformation with a focus on consultancy-intensive specialties, the business – a division of the Biesterfeld Group – was subdivided at the beginning of the year. From now on, Biesterfeld Plastic will have five instead of the previous three globally oriented business units: Advanced Polymers, Engineering Polymers, High Performance Polymers, Performance Elastomers and Sustainable Polymer Solutions.
Innovative solutions for medical wearables
Biesterfeld and DuPont are combining their innovative capabilities to offer forward-looking new solutions for medical wearables. These portable devices, which are worn on the body and provide essential medical data such as blood sugar level or blood pressure, make day-to-day life easier for users and are one of the most important trends in the medical segment.
Biesterfeld and DuPont
Biesterfeld Plastic and DuPont Transportation & Industrial (T&I) are proud to celebrate more than 30 years of exclusive collaboration in the field of engineering polymers and high-performance materials. The two companies are looking forward to continuing their successful partnership, which now extends to much of the EMEA region and Brazil.
