Lehmann & Voss & Co. (Hamburg, Germany), a producer of tailor-made high-performance compounds under the LUVOCOM trademark, has launched a subsidiary company to directly serve the North American plastics compounding market. Located in Pawcatuck, Conn., the new company, LEHVOSS North America LLC, includes a sales, engineering, and manufacturing team to ensure support for customers and users of high-performance materials. LEHVOSS North America will manufacture LUVOCOM materials in the USA to the same engineering specifications and standards that Lehmann & Voss & Co. is known for.
“This is a strong commitment to our customers and is a major step forward to making sure customers have full access to our solution-based products and services. We are now able to deliver our expertise and tailor-made products much faster and with the dedicated support our customers require,” says Alfred Bartkiewicz, managing director of LEHVOSS North America.
LUVOCOM compounds are based on a broad range of thermoplastic resins with a special emphasis on high-performance polymers. The products can be divided into six product groups: high-temperature resistant, lubricant modified, electrically conductive, carbon fiber reinforced, thermally conductive and detectable compounds.
Primary end markets include automotive, medical, machinery and electrical and electronic.
