Daubert Cromwell Expands VCI Film Manufacturing in Europe

ALSIP, IL USA– Daubert Cromwell has expanded its VCI film operations by opening a new plant in Slovakia. The new extruder’s broad range and proximity to the European customer base improves the supply chain of quality VCI Films to one of the company’s fastest growing regions.

The expansion of Daubert Europe is the latest move by Daubert Cromwell, LLC to make its products available to its global customers more efficiently by manufacturing locally and providing more direct technical support. Daubert Cromwell is headquartered in Alsip, Illinois, near Chicago. It has other manufacturing sites in Brazil, China, and India, as well as offices in Germany, Belgium, and Mexico.

The Slovakia plant will manufacture the company’s globally tested and accepted brands of volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) poly films used in automotive, heavy equipment, steel and all types of fabricated metals operations.

Company President & CEO Martin J. Simpson said, “Opening this plant in Slovakia is a significant step in our growth and evolution as the leader in the field of VCI packaging and corrosion prevention. We can now provide our specialized products and services seamlessly and effectively to metal fabricators and producers throughout Europe.”

Daubert Europe is headquartered in Germany. Its technically trained Regional Sales Managers are strategically located to provide corrosion solutions wherever metal parts are stored and exported. They promote and sell the company’s entire line of proprietary corrosion inhibitor films, papers, and rust preventive liquids.

Simpson said, “Our plant in Slovakia, led by a team of experienced and dedicated manufacturing professionals, in conjunction with Daubert’s existing assets and capabilities in Europe, ensure that we can adequately meet the growing demands of our customers throughout Europe.”
