Styron: Plans for New Latex Production Unit in China
Styron announced plans to expand its latex capacity at its Zhangjiagang, China production facility. The projected additional capacity of latex will help to better serve the growing demand for latex in China’s paper and paper board industry, which is projected to grow significantly over the next few years.
The new unit, expected to commence production in Q4 2012, will be adjacent to Styron’s existing latex manufacturing units at Zhangjiagang, and will complement Styron’s other latex production facilities located in Korea, Indonesia and Australia. The expanded latex production facility will significantly enhance Styron’s ability to help regional customers move to optimised product formulations with higher ‘value in use’.
