DAK Americas, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alfa S.A.B. de C.V., recently signed a definitive agreement with DuPont to acquire the technology to manufacture a select group of 2GT- based Polyester Resin Products formerly produced under the Crystar® trade name. The selected product technologies for specialty resins that DAK has acquired from DuPont are typically used to manufacture monofilaments, nonwovens, packaging, and other engineered polyester products.
"The acquiring of these technologies further enhances DAK's capabilities and allows DAK to expand its product offerings into the Specialty Polymers business," said Hector Camberos, President & C.E.O., DAK Americas. DAK Americas has established itself as a leading producer in the Americas for PET Resins, Polyester Staple Fibers and Monomers (polyester raw materials) across Americas. DAK Americas will manufacture and market these specialty resins through a newly created Specialty Polymers Business Unit which will build upon the expertise, synergies and core competencies of DAK's other business units.
