Bayer MaterialScience: Expansion in Shanghai
Bayer MaterialScience AG inaugurated its newly expanded Polymer Research & Development Center (PRDC) facility in Shanghai/China. With the expansion, the PRDC has become Bayer MaterialScience’s first facility in Asia Pacific to host technical development and research facilities for its four business units operating in the region under one roof: Polyurethanes, Polycarbonates, Coatings/Adhesives/Sealants, and Thermoplastic Polyurethanes. Each of these business units will have the full capacity to provide technical service, new application development, as well as training for staff and customers. The PRDC now hosts some of the best equipped laboratories for Bayer MaterialScience globally.
As part of the expansion, two buildings and a warehouse extension with a gross floor area of close to 5000 square meters were added, more than doubling the center’s previous floor area. Currently, more than 100 staff already work at the facility, and this number is expected to grow.
