Oxea: Planned Turnaround at German Oberhausen plant

MONHEIM AM RHEIN, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–From May 26, 2018, OxeaÔÇÖs production site in Oberhausen, Germany, will
undergo the regular statutory planned turnaround. For an expected four
weeks of routine inspections, the facilities at the Oberhausen site will
be shut down as part of a coordinated maintenance plan. Oxea will use
this time to implement projects – for example, to eliminate production
bottlenecks and to modernize plants according to the latest
technological findings.

"Planned turnarounds and associated measures contribute to the safe and
efficient operation and extend the life of our plants. The multitude of
tasks in this project requires a broad and well-coordinated
organization. For many months we meticulously prepared ourselves for
this turnaround with about 15 teams from the technical, operational and
commercial areas at Oxea. A smooth process and on-time delivery are
important to us. However, safety is Oxea's top priority," commented
Project Manager Dr. Ing. Oliver B├╝lters.

Oxea has taken all measures to ensure that the contractual delivery
obligations are met even during the turnaround at the Oberhausen plant.
Jacco de Haas, Vice President of Global Sales at Oxea said: "Our
customers know us as a reliable partner. Working closely with our supply
chain unit, we have made clear agreements that we will comply with."
