Over 80 years experience of injection moulding
Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials Plastics NV was originally founded in Tielt, Belgium, in 1933 as a private family-owned business under the name of ERTA NV. Since its foundation, its core activity has been the injection molding of high-performance plastics, with an emphasis on close customer involvement.
In 1973, the company became part of DSM’s Engineering Plastic Products (EPP) business, which in turn was acquired by the Quadrant Group on 1st January 2001. The Quadrant Group was a global leader in high-performance polymer materials in the form of (semi)finished products, used in a wide range of applications. The Group operates more than 25 production sites in 20 countries and has more than 2,400 employees worldwide. Since 2013 the Quadrant Group is fully owned by Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, as a group covering more than 40,000 employees over 358 subsidiaries and affiliates in 30 countries. Following this integration the company name changed to Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials as of 1st of April 2019.
Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials maintains the customer-driven philosophy of its founding years, and supplies parts and components to world-class manufacturers of critical systems in the automotive, mechanical, electrical & electronic and medical device markets.
