20 September 2006
The declaration of Force Majeure, sent out September 14, is now withdrawn for one of the products; Charmor.
As a consequence of the dust explosion in the penta plant at the site in Bruchhausen, Germany, Force Majeure was declared September 14 as regards deliveries of Pentaerythritol, Di-Pentaerythritol, Calcium Formate, Prosid CF 30 and Charmor from the Perstorp Group’s European units. This declaration is now withdrawn for Charmor. A more detailed investigation of the situation has been done and as a result of that there will be no restriction of supplying Charmor products from Perstorp. Some days of production have been lost, but the normal production rate is now reached. However, lead times might be slightly longer than normal for the coming weeks.
