“MACtac highlights REACH regulation & cost impact”
While Mactac continues to introduce innovative new products at a fast pace, after a lot of efforts, the company is proud to announce that it has successfully transformed all legacy products to REACH compliant versions before the related 2015 deadlines.
This evolution has brought about significant modifications of the products cost structure, in particular regarding new pigments and new adhesives. Changes in supplier structure have also led MACtac to mobilize major efforts to secure product sourcing and guarantee optimal product availability to all customers.
While Mactac strives to mitigate the effects of these changes by controlling the costs of oil-based raw materials, regrettably the company has no choice but to pass on some of the increased costs in its prices as of April 1, 2015.
With more than 1600 employees worldwide and global turnover of 553 million USD in 2013, MACtac has built upon its reputation as a performance-driven innovator in the pressure sensitive adhesive industry.
The company has manufacturing and distribution facilities around the globe, including the United States, Belgium, Canada, Mexico and Singapore. The European plant and the MACtac Europe Headquarters were established in Soignies (Belgium) in 1967. MACtac Europe S.A. distributes its products through fully owned Subsidiaries (France, UK, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Benelux, Switzerland, Spain, Singapore, Poland and Shanghai -China) and through an international network of specialized distributors in the other regions, guaranteeing a professional service to all customers whatever their size or industry.
