PS Empera in Great Britain and Ireland

Biesterfeld Plastic GmbH and INEOS NOVA extend their partnership for Empera® Polystyrene to The United Kingdom and Ireland


Biesterfeld Plastic GmbH, pan-European distribution partner of INEOS NOVA for Empera® PS extend with immediate effect their cooperation to include The United Kingdom and Ireland.

Existing, non-exclusive distribution agreements between INEOS NOVA and other parties in these regions are unaffected.

Carsten Harms, General Manager of Biesterfeld Plastic GmbH says: "We have a long history with PS producers such as Huntsman Chemicals, NOVA Chemicals, BP and Innovene whose PS acitivities were combined by the consolidation process which resulted in the global market leader INEOS NOVA.  I am delighted we have continuously extended our presence in Polystyrene distribution into almost all European regions.

We are proud that three years after our market entry into The United Kingdom and Ireland, our Joint Venture Biesterfeld Petroplas, has the opportunity to expand their product range and offer  Empera® PS from our strategic partner INEOS NOVA

 Polystyrene is a key part of every distributor’s product range. Furthermore, PS creates synergies in the distribution of SBD copolymers which we have sold successfully in Great Britain for many years."

Robert Huetter, Sales Manager Europe, INEOS NOVA comments: "Biesterfeld Plastic is by far the biggest European distributor for INEOS NOVA. The extension of our partnership to The United Kingdom and Ireland will further strengthen this position."
