Clariant Opens new Guangzhou Masterbatch Plant
4th June 2019
Swiss specialty chemicals company Clariant has opened a new production facility for black specialty masterbatches in Guangzhou, China. The group said these products are in “high demand” from a number of consumer goods sectors in the People’s Republic. The site also includes a state-of-art workshop and an upgraded advanced lab.
The new production facility was built at a cost of 5 million Swiss francs.
With black PET/PA masterbatches for manmade fibers already developing into a “sizable” business in China and some other Asian countries, Clariant said the new facility in Guangzhou will supplement supply from its existing plant in Taiwan.
Since 1995, the Muttenz-based group has been building its presence in the South China region with a focus on products for fiber, consumer goods and packaging applications. In 2017, it widened its high performance masterbatch activities supplying the E&E sector.
Including the Taiwan facility, the specialty chemicals producer has a total of three masterbatch production sites in the Greater China region. Bernd Hoegemann, head of Clariant’s Masterbatches business unit, said the new investment will enhance the specialty chemicals producer’s full range serve in supplying black masterbatches to local customers.
