South Deerfield plastics company buys 11-acre site for planned expansion
SOUTH DEERFIELD — Bayer MaterialScience LLC, a worldwide producer of high-performance plastics, has purchased 11 acres adjacent to its South Deerfield site in anticipation of future expansion.
In December, Bayer bought the land from Fairview Farm owners Alan Sanderson, Alan Sanderson Jr. and Bradley Sanderson of Whately for $786,024, according to the Franklin County Registry of Deeds.
The global company stated the land purchase allows for future expansion of its site at 8 Fairview Way, South Deerfield, in the Deerfield Industrial Park. The existing facility is 147,000 square feet.
How the company plans to use the new property hasn’t been determined so far, the company says.
“Bayer MaterialScience is committed to its specialty films business in North America, and this land purchase supports our future growth plans for this important region,” general manager Shaun Gaus said in a press release.
Bayer is a leader in creating high-tech polymer materials. The South Deerfield facility manufactures and sells thermoplastic polyurethane, polycarbonate and polycarbonate blend, and other specialty film and sheet plastics for use in various markets, including medical, sports and recreation, automotive and safety and security.
