Clariant invests in personal- and home-care segments in Asia  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Clariant AG (Muttenz, Switzerland; www.clariant.com) will build a new production facility at its Tangerang site in Indonesia to support regional demands in the personal and home care industry. The overall investment of approx. CHF17 million in combined esterquat and methylquat production will add 12,000 tons collective capacity for liquid and solid products used as key ingredients in consumer care products such as fabric softeners or hair conditioners. Start-up for the new facility is expected in 2015. Clariant is a well-established supplier to the global personal care and industrial home care markets. The new facility at Tangerang, Indonesia, will establish highly flexible, local manufacturing capabilities to support the region’s increasing preference for sustainable and safer ingredients. Clariant has been manufacturing a range of products for home care and personal care applications at Tangerang since 1990.
