Monday, November 9, 2009

Comment | More

Wacker Chemie AG, headquartered in Munich, Germany, opened its new Wacker Polymers U.S. headquarters and new technical center in Allentown, PA, on October 22. The new center has lab facilities and will develop and test polymer products for applications in the construction, adhesive, engineered fabrics, and architectural coating industries.

The new location will integrate two of Wacker’s former joint ventures, Air Products Polymers and Wacker Polymer Systems. The company acquired full ownership of both companies last year.

The company has plans to set up a training center at the Allentown location, offering application-related seminars to construction customers. There are currently Wacker Academies located in Germany, Russia, China, and India.
