Exhibitor Interview: Cabot Corporation
In our first Exhibitor Interview series we caught up with Sebastian Heitkamp, Global Segment Marketing Manager at Cabot about standing out from the competition, the new TECHBLAK™ 85 masterbatch series and what they are looking forward to at Compounding World Expo this year.
What do you think is currently the biggest challenge facing your industry?
What do you think sets your company apart from your competitors?
Cabot is uniquely positioned in the industry as the only backward integrated supplier of black masterbatch globally. This puts us at a competitive advantage because it enables us to control our supply chain, from raw material to formulation. We think with a formulation mindset and have deep expertise in this space, which allows us to tailor our solutions to meet very specific customer needs, including conductive solutions. Also, we benefit from the breadth of our global network. Our facilities in Europe, Asia and North America make it possible for us to supply customers in every region.
Are there any new technology developments that your company is working on at the moment?
What are you most looking forward to at this years’ show? You attended the launch show in 2018, what did you gain from the experience?
Similar to the previous shows in Essen and Cleveland, we look forward to engaging not only with key suppliers as well as customers, but also with specifiers. We enjoy this show because it combines the recycling and compounding worlds together, and with this there is a strong link between raw materials and end applications, and a great opportunity to discuss sustainability. Having this discussion across both sides is something we’re looking forward to.
Cabot will be exhibiting at Compounding World Expo in Essen, Germany, 3 - 4 June at stand A628.
