VitroTech Corp. Announces Roscom Inc. Begins Production Utilization of Vitrolite

Published on 2005-02-07. Author : SpecialChem

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- VitroTech Corp. (OTCBB:VROT - News) announced that Roscom Inc., a PVC (poly-vinyl chloride) compounder from Croydon, Pa., has begun to incorporate Vitrolite® into various PVC compounds for customer applications. Nick Lynch, Roscom's president, reports that "three of our important customers have found significant productivity gains by using Roscom compounds made with Vitrolite®. These customers include two extruders and one injection molder. This product enhancement for Roscom, coupled with the excellent customer service we have always provided, should continue to help to differentiate Roscom from other PVC compounders."

Glenn Easterbrook, CEO of VitroTech, commented that "Roscom has experienced both the benefits that its customers will receive from the addition of Vitrolite® to compounds, as well as the productivity enhancement Roscom has achieved in the operation of its own extrusion lines while manufacturing its compounds for sale. We expect that Roscom's production consumption of Vitrolite® will grow dramatically from its initial 40,000-pound order, as its own technical staff improves existing product formulations taking advantage of Vitrolite®'s various benefits."
