Mannheim, germany -- The Rhein Chemie Group saw sales rise by 40 percent year-on-year in 2010, to EUR 283 million.
At the beginning of the year Rhein Chemie acquired Darmex S.A. and its production sites in Argentina (Buenos Aires and Merlo) and Uruguay (Colonia). At the beginning of February, the company announced plans to expand bladder production in Buenos Aires.
