Trend setter from Franconia
Markt Bibart turns the plastic industry on its head
It sounds like metal, while offering higher performance than aluminum and the design freedom of plastic: Maezio™ – an innovative composite based on continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic polymers (CFRTP). With Maezio™, Covestro has revolutionized the world of high-tech materials. This lightweight plastic of the future is produced in Markt Bibart.
Small, yet mighty: that’s the motto of Covestro Thermoplast Composite GmbH in Markt Bibart. The company has run the site since 2016. The town is located between Würzburg and Nuremberg and has just 2,000 residents. Currently, around 55 well-trained and highly motivated employees work at the site.
Covestro is riding a wave of success in Markt Bibart. It's all thanks to Maezio™ – an innovative composite. With the material, the company has once again pushed the boundaries of the chemical industry. Covestro is the only manufacturer in the world to offer the new “super plastic,” which has been available since 2018.
