Huntsman: New Production Site in Turkey
Huntsman Materials and Effects Europe officially cut the ribbon at its new Tuzla Site in Istanbul, Turkey. This 5000m2 , state of the art site houses both a production facility for Advanced Materials (AdMat) and a Textile Effects (TE) Formulation and Distribution Centre (FDC), along with a Technical Centre serving the European textile market.
For Textile Effects, Turkey, with its dynamic textile industry, is a key strategic market. By investing in this new Centre of Excellence (CoE), TE is strengthening both its operations in Turkey and its global network, thereby bolstering its ability to provide best in class service and innovative solutions to customers and partners.
The new facility, located in the Tuzla Paint and Varnish Industrial Zone, provides a production platform in the heart of the fast-growing Istanbul Industrial Zones. With convenient access and modern infrastructure, the Paint and Varnish Industrial Zone will give Huntsman a further competitive advantage.
Advanced Materials and Textile Effects have been operating in Turkey for some 45 years. Initially, this was through agent and distributor networks, followed by operations under the Ciba-Geigy and Ciba Specialty Chemicals names, and then, upon joining the Huntsman Corporation, under the AdMat (2003) and TE (2006) names.
