Huntsman to Expand Polyurethane Production Capabilities in India

The Polyurethanes division of Huntsman Corporation, Everberg, Belgium, plans to expand its polyurethane production capabilities in India. Over the next year, the company will invest USD 10 million in the construction of a world-class systems house in Pune, India – a city near Mumbai favored by major Indian and multi-national companies.

The new facility – scheduled to be operational by the end of Q1 2012 – will replace Huntsman’s existing system house in Thane (also near Mumbai), which has served the company well but has limited scope for expansion and occupies land that is due to transfer back to its owner shortly.

Construction of a purpose-built modern systems house at Pune will enable the company to capitalize on its leading position in the Indian polyurethanes market; enhance its range of services; and continue to supply local customers quickly and efficiently. Demand for Huntsman’s methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) products is rising across India’s manufacturing sector. Fuelled by rapid social and economic development, established and emerging markets for MDI include innovative footwear technologies; tailor-made solutions for automotive and construction; retail and cold supply chain applications for the country’s thriving logistics sector; and infrastructure build projects.

Plans for the eight-acre site at Pune include a modern development machine hall and large scale blending facilities to enable supply, both in bulk and in intermediate bulk containers.
