Lehigh’s micronized rubber powder (MRP) products are a standard raw material for many industrial companies across eighteen countries on five continents. Our main production plant is based near Atlanta, Georgia, currently serving the global markets. To meet the growing demand in Europe, Middle East and Africa and ensure a reliable supply of micronized rubber powder, Lehigh is building a facility in Spain.
Lehigh Technologies has formed Lehigh Spain, a joint venture with the Spanish waste to resources company HERA Holding, to build and operate the first MRP plant in Europe. Under this joint venture, Lehigh will vertically integrate with HERA’s end-of-life tire collection system to streamline its supply chain.
Lehigh Technologies will start producing MRP in Europe in early 2017 at a new production plant in Navarra, Spain.
