After several months of falling prices, Western European PET contract prices evidently bottomed out in December 2019. Prices for freely-traded and large volumes remained at the previous level of just above €800/t ($887), while deliveries linked to the paraxylene reference similarly resulted in a rollover.Plastics Carbon Fiber RePackaging
For the medium-to-small volumes subject to regular monthly transactions that PIE reports on, prices at the lower end of the range slid by around €50/t ($55). The very small volumes and specified grades at the upper end of the range remained mostly stable, by contrast, since purchasers generally had to have recourse to goods from European production lines running at a reduced output.

“One example was with Harley-Davidson. Early on, we inherited some work for them that was not running correctly.

“We were more or less rolling the dice. It was a new account for us,” Kirchmer said. There was no guarantee that Harley would pay for the new tooling. But it did, and PolyFlex’s decision helped cement what has become a long relationship.
