Diab Group AND SKAPS of India have entered a partnership for production of PET foam to support growing demand of core material to wind industry in India.


The partnership agreement includes a joint investment in a PET foam production plant in the city of Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.

Driven by the increased demand of PET core material in the wind energy sector in India, the 6,000m2 production plant will produce Diab’s Divinycell PET range of products. Providing high shear strain and an optimum resin uptake, the material is developed to meet blade designs in an optimal way with the aim to reduce the cost in wind blade manufacturing.

“We carefully selected SKAPS to be our partner, based on their strong management, proven manufacturing experience, high level of quality and excellent company culture that links strongly to Diab’s own values,” said Tobias Hahn, CEO at Diab Group. “The plan is to start supplying the local Indian market already in first quarter 2021.”

SKAPS Industries is a leading manufacturer and supplier of geosynthetic products and fiberglass fabric and holds a strong market presence in over 60 countries. The company’s primary focus is to supply quality products with site-specific performance that satisfy the most demanding civil, environmental and industrial applications.
