Clariant Opens Surfactant Plant in China

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Comment | More

Specialty chemical company Clariant (Muttenz, Switzerland) announced the September 17 opening of a surfactants production facility in Zhenjiang, Eastern China. The plant, which is fully operational, has been designed to meet China’s growing demand for surfactants from various sectors such as paints and coatings, metal working, and personal care products.

The 50,000-square-meter facility, which includes the latest environmental technology, has a capacity of more than 22,000 tones per annum, says Clariant. Other products available at the plant will include chemicals for textile, oil, mining and homecare segments.

Zhenjiang is located on the Yangtze river between Nanjing and Shanghai, within reach of Clariant’s key customers in the region. This facility will complement the company’s already established manufacturing capabilities in the country.

The new plant is part of a USD 100 million investment program Clariant has made in China during the past 18 months. Clariant employs more than 1,300 staff at its laboratories, production facilities and offices in over 13 locations across Greater China.

“This new facility will enable us to meet the needs of the growing Chinese and wider Asian markets, which have remained strong despite the global economic downturn,” said Hariolf Kottmann, Clariant CEO, during his official inauguration speech at the Zhenjiang plant.
