CARLISLE® invests in Further Growth

Europe’s leading EPDM manufacturer CARLISLE® Construction Materials Europe is launching the next phase to expand capacity at its production facility in Waltershausen, Thuringia, Germany, thus laying the foundation for further growth. In September 2018, the company opened a new, modularly expandable plant there for the production of RESITRIX® EPDM waterproofing membranes, among other products. RESITRIX® is one of the leading brands in the single-layer EPDM waterproofing segment with steadily increasing demand.

In the next expansion phase, state-of-the-art machinery and efficient, environmentally-friendly production processes will continue to ensure that not only the products meet the highest quality demands of customers, but that the manufacturer also meets the requirements for environmental protection and sustainability in an outstanding manner. For its entrepreneurial achievements and its role within society, CARLISLE® was recognized in 2020 as a finalist in the “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes” (Award for medium-sized companies), Germany’s most coveted business award.
