Headquartered in Altdorf, Germany, Biofibre was founded in 2011 and produces Biofibre® granules. The granules are a compound of natural fibers and a (bio-)polymer matrix. In the manufacturing process, natural fiber and matrix combine to form a natural fiber-reinforced biomaterial for thermoplastic processing to produce molded products. The applications are many and varied - from alternative packaging concepts, technical workpieces through to use in the concrete industry.

"Biofibre is a significant new supplier for Nordmann. As a chemical distributor, sustainable raw materials and the reduction of plastic waste are of great importance to us. That is why we are particularly pleased to take over the distribution of Biofibre's natural fiber-reinforced CO2 neutral biomaterials, enabling us to offer our customers an alternative for sustainably manufactured products," explained Jost E. Laumeyer, Global Sales Director Plastics at Nordmann.

The Biofibre product range includes the bio-based compounds Biofibre® Silva, Biofibre® Solva, Biofibre® Lenta and Biofibre® Sustra, as well as customized blends for customer-specific requirements.

"We believe the partnership has great potential and thanks to Nordmann's international network and excellent relationships we are confident that we can significantly increase awareness of Biofibre products in the European market", said Christoph Glammert, CEO of Biofibre. 

*Distribution in: Bulgaria, Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey and Hungary.
