Lanxess: Expansion of the Jhagadia Site

Lanxess AG, Leverkusen, Germany, is continuing to expand its Indian production site in Jhagadia, Gujarat state. The specialty chemicals group is underlining its commitment to the subcontinent by inaugurating three new plants this month to serve the growing India market. The company has invested over EUR 70 million and created roughly 300 new jobs at the site. The company’s Semi-Crystalline Products business unit started production at the site’s new plant for high-tech plastics used by the automotive industry, including leading car manufacturers Tata Motors, Volkswagen and Ford. Furthermore, the Material Protection Products business unit inaugurated a plant for biocides used in the construction industry. Lanxess subsidiary Rhein Chemie also started up a plant for release agents and additives used in the manufacturing of tires and rubber products. Both plants were relocated from a former site in Madurai, Tamil Nadu state, during the course of last year. The site already includes a facility for ion exchange resins, used in water purification, and a rubber chemicals plant serving the tire and rubber processing industries. Both started up production in 2010. Jhagadia is Lanxess’ second largest production site in India after its site in Nagda in Madhya Pradesh state.

The company not only expanded its Jhagadia site this month, but also opened its new head offices in Thane, Maharashtra state.
