Clariant AG (Muttenz, Switzerland; www.clariant.com) recently inaugurated significant investments to its operations in Indonesia, including large capacity expansions in the personal care, masterbatches and pigments sectors. All new and updated facilities are located in Tangerang, Indonesia.
A new plant for masterbatches is among the investment projects, effectively doubling production capacity in Tangerang with the option for further increases. The investment extends the variety and availability of Clariant’s products to meet local demand for masterbatches from a wide range of end-industries, including packaging and consumer goods.
Also, Clariant opened a new pigment-preparations plant, doubling capacity to support the growth in demand for high quality, low volatile-organic-compounds (VOC) pigment preparations complying with eco-labeling schemes.
The investment also included the doubling of existing production capacity and an enlarged application-development laboratory to enhance support for customers in the personal care and industrial care sectors.
