Haltermann Carless' production site in Speyer has a long history and a promising future. This is due to its strategically favourable location in the heart of Europe, a strong product portfolio, permanent investments in modern technologies and committed employees. The manufacturing plant, which has been in operation since July 1965, has constantly advanced and embraced future trends. At the time of its foundation, modern technologies such as valve bottoms or air-cooled condensation were used and a biological wastewater treatment plant was put into operation. Now the production site is again taking important steps towards the future: for more sustainability and clear customer added value.

Silicone sealants are important materials for professionals and craftsmen in the building industry. There is hardly a joint or crevice that is not filled with silicone sealant. The typical quality features are high - tear-resistant, water-repellency and colour-fast. An important contribution to this is made by the low-viscosity base oils used for this purpose, more precisely the Pilot® extender oils from Haltermann Carless. We spoke with Jan Boerrigter, Commercial Manager for Middle Distillates, and asked him how Haltermann Carless provides technical advice to manufacturers of silicone seals in the development of formulations, the new hydrogenation plant and individual supply chain concepts.
