thyssenkrupp Uhde’s subsidiary Uhde Inventa-Fischer signed a contract to build three new polymer plants for SASA Polyester Sanayi A.Ş in Adana, Turkey.

Dr. Mustafa Kemal Öz, GM of SASA POLYESTER SANAYI A.Ş. said, “We are pleased to choose again Uhde Inventa-Fischer for our new investments. SASA is racing to global leadership in polyester production with its state-of-the-art world class production facilities. It is an honor to continue our cooperation with UIF who has been always a good business partner of our growth strategy.”
Werner Steinauer, CEO of Uhde Inventa-Fischer said, “We are very proud that SASA chose us to build further state-of-the-art PET plants after we were assigned to build already Line 1, Line 2, and Line 3.”
Scope of delivery for all plants includes basic and detail engineering, delivery of all necessary components, technical services regarding plant erection as well as supervision of erection and commissioning.
