Clariant opens two new facilities in China for additive production

By Scott Jenkins |

Clariant (Muttenz, Switzerland; www.clariant.com), a world leader in specialty chemicals, today announced the official opening of two new, fully-owned additives facilities at its site in Zhenjiang, China. This completes a multi-million CHF investment originally announced last year and puts Clariant’s additives business in China on track to further expand its offering of customized, high-end solutions for the plastics, coatings & ink industries.

The newly opened facilities are dedicated to the production of Ceridust micronized waxes and AddWorks synergistic additive solutions, both of which are used in various applications across the plastics, coatings and ink industries. Clariant’s additives business is already a partner of choice for producers in these industries and the additional local production capacity will allow Clariant to provide more tailored solutions at shortened lead times. Such tailored solutions are a key component in continuing to expand Clariant’s China sales, as they fulfill the demand for environmentally compatible and safe products as outlined in China’s 13th Five Year Plan and the industrial policy ‘Made in China 2025’, while allowing Clariant to differentiate itself in the market environment.
