Addivant Opens Customer Formulation Center in China
Addivant USA LLC , Middlebury, CT/USA, will launch its latest “Customer Formulation Center” in Shandong, China. The new facility will be the company’s first in China and will come on stream on August 1, 2014. The center will be available for the latest in “form-giving technology” including the company’s proprietary non dust blends, NDB and equipment. The center will complement the company’s existing Customer Formulation Centers in North America, Europe and the Middle East.
"To expand our leadership position, we are increasing our investment in the areas of R&D to deliver new chemistries and manufacturing: to build new formulation centers that are close to our customers allowing us to tailor our solutions and deliver them quickly and safely. The expansion into China makes tremendous sense given the region’s position in new polymer production and the fast growth of its downstream processing industries,” said Peter Smith, President and CEO of Addivant.
The new operations in China will join Addivant's network of existing formulation centers and will be supported by their worldwide R&D facilities to ensure the very latest technologies are deployed. The facility will be further supported with an increase in Addivant's local technical organization who will work alongside their customers.
