Otto Wolff Kunststoffe to be renamed ThyssenKrupp Plastics

Effective October 1, 2015, the business unit Otto Wolff Kunststoffe is to be renamed ThyssenKrupp Plastics. Sales to the builders merchant sector currently handled by Otto Wolff Kunststoffe will continue in the future under the strong ThyssenKrupp Plastics brand. The rebranding will not involve any further changes.

“This move means that all our German plastics businesses will now operate under the ThyssenKrupp Plastics brand and we can act as a one-stop shop in the future,” says Jürgen Westphal, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Plastics. “Nothing will change for our customers in the builders merchant sector, and we will continue to serve them as a reliable and efficient partner. The range and quality of our products and our established product names will remain the same.”
