Vienna, Austria / Atlanta Georgia, USA, June 15, 2021 - The publicly listed

"Customer intimacy is one of Semperit's strategic guiding principles. With our 
commitment and investments in a market-oriented approach, stronger focus on 
applications, and faster product development, we want to drive growth in North 
and South America," says Martin Füllenbach, CEO of Semperit AG Holding. 
The North America infrastructure and construction sector is expected to spend 
around USD 212 trillion US dollars by 2030. "We have seen substantial growth in 
the Americas in recent years and we are convinced that our strengthened regional 
focus, plus the establishment of the US headquarters, in combination with a new 
production site, will strongly support in meeting our increased customer 
requirements while allowing us to service customers faster and more 
efficiently", says Irene Coughlin, Managing Director Americas. "The new 
headquarters and manufacturing footprint will also allow for improved operating 
efficiencies, increased supply chain and logistics management, and enhanced 
communications for our region". 
New location and state-of-the-art facility 
After one year of planning and site scouting, Semperit will relocate its current 
Americas headquarters from Stone Mountain, Georgia, to a new 150,000 square foot 
facility located in the Coweta Industrial Park in Newnan, Georgia. The facility, 
scheduled to open November 1, 2021, will include administrative space, 
production lines for building façade seals, window gaskets, road and bridge 
expansion joints among other sealing components, as well as increased 
warehousing and distribution capabilities for the entire sealant and conveyor 
belting portfolio. 
Sustainable commitment 
In line with environmental objectives, waste reduction, and lower energy 
consumption, the new US plant will be powered 100% by renewable energy sources. 
Jobs Creation 
70 new jobs will be created across production, distribution, sales, 
professional, and customer service. This investment in expanded manufacturing, 
warehousing and distribution capabilities signals long-term growth plans in 
supplying original equipment manufacturers, transportation, manufacturing, 
mining, raw materials and construction customers across North and South America.
