Wacker Chemie AG, Munich, Germany, is strengthening its presence in Southeast Asia, and inaugurates its expanded technical center in Singapore last week. A new laboratory has been built for developing and testing silicone elastomers for growing industries such as health care and electronics. At the same time, the labs for silicones and polymeric binders dedicated to construction applications have been expanded and newly furnished.

The regional competence center will now provide technical support for customers in the electronics, personal and health care, textile, automotive, coatings and construction industry, among others. With the expansion, Wacker is increasing its local expertise in applications technology, know-how transfer and service, thereby meeting its customers’ needs for high-quality silicone and polymer products in the strongly growing markets of Southeast Asia.

“Southeast Asia is an important growth market for Wacker. Our sales in the region have grown significantly over the recent years, and we see further potential for strong future growth in the region”, explained Wacker Executive Board member Christian Hartel during the opening ceremony. Consequently, the Group is investing continuously in its Singapore technical center and customer services.

Spanning an area of more than 1,500 square meters, the regional competence center now houses under a single roof both customer development, applications technology, and a training facility for silicones and polymers applications. “Our aim is to support our local customers by realizing their individual requirements directly on the spot, and to develop and test innovative applications together with them”, said Patrick de Wolf, Managing Director of Wacker Southeast Asia. “With the new labs and our expanded portfolio, we are setting new standards in service, advice and transfer of expertise, offering our customers and business partners considerable added value.”
