Falken Industries Starts Operations at Expanded European Plant

Increase to 20,000 tons per year for biodegradable vehicular care products

Falken Industries Ltd (FLKI) has started enhanced operations at the expanded plant for the production of its biodegradable product line conceptions. Expansion of the existing European plant will increase production capacity for the biodegradable collection from 8,000 to 20,000 metric tons per year. At the same time, FLKI will ramp up compounding capacity for derivative products in the Clean Plus® branded Eco-pledge certified biodegradable product conceptions.

“We are already successful in the market with our unique biodegradable wet wipe productions and the related innovations that have derived from the policy accent placed on biodegradability. The larger production capacities will enhance our position significantly,” said Manuel Garcia Communications Officer at FLKI. “The capacity expansion will also enable us to respond even more effectively to our customers’ wishes.”

FLKI wipe and chemical conceptions are in use throughout the world and the new collection is fully biodegradable under industrial composting conditions in accordance with International Chemical Standards for ISO, DIN, JIS & EU Directives. “FLKI’s continuing success lies in large part on its international research, and the company’s well known policy to honor individuals and innovative projects that are especially committed to establishing a working culture of diversity within all operations,” added Garcia.

With this evolution, FLKI is one of the world’s leaders in its industry for bio-based and biodegradable vehicular care product conceptions. FLKI product conceptions, notably under the Clean Plus® label are increasingly in demand, and the market for biodegradable and bio-based products is currently growing by more than 20 percent per year.
