Bang & Bonsomer acquires majority of shares in a clean-tech

Bang & Bonsomer acquires majority of shares in a clean-tech company Betulium Oy and invests in application development, commercialisation and production of microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) and nanocellulose (CNF) based on Betulium’s technology. 

A production factory is built in Säkylä Finland to produce MFC from agricultural side streams, such as sugar beet and potato pulp which are left after sugar or starch extraction. The factory produced first commercial scale production in March 2019. Bang & Bonsomer will market MFC and CNF globally under FIBRY brand name.

FIBRY is a natural high-tech polymer, which can replace synthetic polymers in various industrial applications, such as paints & coatings, construction, personal & home care, food, feed, composites and packaging. FIBRY has a low carbon footprint and as a natural polymer FIBRY is not a source of micro-plastics like synthetic polymers.

Bang & Bonsomer has been an investor in Betulium since 2017, and the companies have had close cooperation in technical application development and commercialization of MFC and CNF. Co-operation has been very promising, and companies see a large global potential for FIBRY.

Bang & Bonsomer is a material technology company and a distributor for a wide range of industrial raw materials and additives in Finland, Scandinavia, CIS-countries and the Baltic States. Bang & Bonsomer has seven industry-oriented business units that specialize in sales and services for industry focused applications. In 2018 group sales were 170 M€ and number of employees over 300.

Betulium’s founders Marko Lauraeus and Antti Laukkanen will stay in the company after acquisition as key managers for further development of FIBRY technology and as minority shareholders of Betulium.

Bang & Bonsomer starts producing gel coatings in Finland

Close

Bang & Bonsomer is proud to announce the planned opening

Bang & Bonsomer is proud to announce the planned opening of the new Gel Coat manufacturing unit on its Kokkola warehouse site in Finland by Q4 2016.
This investment will allow Bang & Bonsomer to manufacture and sell the very successful and highly valued range of POLYCOR® QUICKMIX® gel coats supplied by Polynt Composites.
It is of great importance to have a local presence in Finland in order to provide prompt service for customers – composite laminate producers in such industry segments as Marine, Transportation, Energy and Sanitary.
These gel coats have earned a reputation as being the best technology gel coats on the market, available in any RAL shade and manufactured using exactly the same high-quality raw materials as standard POLYCOR® production. The highly accurate production machines use proven technology for excellent results. The machines have self-checking gravimetric technology, which produces the most consistent and reliable batch-to-batch quality by accurately weighing the raw materials.
Available in spray or brush grade, POLYCOR® QUICKMIX® will provide a durable, porosity-free surface that will look fantastic in most composite applications. This gel coat will come ready to apply, needing only the addition of Methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP).
