Tubos Perfilados SA (Tupersa) of Burgo de Ebro, is expanding its operations, adding PVC and polyethylene pipe production plants in Cordoba and the island of Majorca in Spain.
Tupersa already runs 40 extruders. The firm recently placed an order for nine more from Cincinnati Extrusion GmbH, together worth 650,000 euros ($740,000).
Most of the machines, which include three Alpha single-screw extruders, two Duo 45/75-30D models, three Konos machines and one Proton, are destined for the company's new Majorca site.
Vienna, Austria-based Cincinnati Extrusion also just delivered another Alpha extruder to Tupersa, the 300th Alpha sold by the supplier since it introduced the model four years ago. Tupersa now has 14 of the machines.
Tupersa, now with an annual production capacity of 66 million pounds, is the leader in Spain for manufacturing pipes for electrical applications. Its range includes flexible polypropylene water pipes, and PE composite cable conduit.
