Construction of a Production Facility in Singapore
Milliken Increases Investment in Asia
Milliken & Company, Spartanburg, SC/USA, plans to construct a new chemical manufacturing plant and knowledge center in Asia.
Expected to begin operations in Q1 2021, the facility expands the company’s chemical manufacturing footprint to support increasing demand across Asia, including rapidly growing markets in India and China. The company currently operates an applications lab and technical service and sales office in Singapore, and recently celebrated its 20-year presence in the region.
Nucleating Agents and Specialty Colorants
The new plant will have the capability to manufacture several integral Milliken plastic additives. Primarily, the location will produce the company’s Hyperform family of nucleating agents for polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE); as well as specialty colorants for a broad range of product applications, including home and laundry care, personal care, industrial and institutional cleaners, and polyurethane foams.
The Singapore plant will be staffed with a skilled workforce including research and development chemists, chemical engineers, and technical support.
