France, Chaumont-en-Vexin, 25th September 2020
As from next week, we will be able to start our extrusion activity (profiles/gaskets) again after having suffered from a terrible fire on the 9th September. Our team is happy to be able to produce for you again and will be in a 3×8 shift in October in order to address backlogs.
As our moulding activity (sheets) is concerned, we will have one of our damaged presses repaired, the press will be back at the end of October and be as new. At the same time, we are working to outsource in order to start a few weeks before with a reduced capacity (25%).
We will keep you informed regularly (weekly) in order to give you more precise information while moving forward with the two projects.
We thank you a lot for your support, your understanding and your partnership.
Chaumont-en-Vexin, September 17th, 2020
A terrible fire broke out on the night of Wednesday, September 9th.
A fire that destroyed a tenth of our building, built in 2018.
The cause of this fire remains to be determined.
The molding workshop (for plates) and the finishing workshops (brushing / gluing of plates and profiles) were destroyed. The extrusion workshop was relatively spared. The warehouse, our offices, the laboratory, etc. were not affected by the fire.
We will start the extrusion workshop at the end of September. The profile finishing workshop will start a few weeks later. The start of the plate molding workshop has yet to be determined, we are working on it.
We are grateful to the firefighters who fought the blaze and we thank our customers, suppliers, partners and the various authorities who gave us their support and understanding.
We are rolling up our sleeves, helped by many companies and external teams and we will be able to serve you again very soon!
With pleasure we anounce the development of a new quality of our natural rubber sheets for die cut : ‘Raclot Superior Natural Rubber’.
Raclot Superior Natural Rubber has all the mechanical properties of the existing Raclot Standard Natural Rubber, but is also certified from the German institute ISEGA for its compliance with the reglementation EC No 1935/2004, article 3 and LFGB (Lebensmittel-, Bedarfsgegenstände- und Futtermittelgesetzbuch), paragraphes 30 and 31.
Raclot Superior Natural Rubber presents therefore the same compliance ‘food contact’ as the other materials on the die cut market, maintaining the superior mechanical properties of Raclot Standard Natural Rubber at the same time. Besides Raclot Superior Natural Rubber, we will of course maintain the Raclot Standard Natural Rubber.
Feel free to contact us for more information about the new quality Raclot Superior Natural Rubber, we can produce as from now.
