The 3 million Euro investment will support additional supplies of acrylic powder coatings, metallic powder coatings and powder primers for the automotive sector.

"China is a high priority region for us and the booming powder coatings industry in China will help to optimise our production and investment strategy,” says CEO Thierry Vanlancker.

Support of entire East China region

Opened in 2012, the Changzhou site supports the manufacture of both powder coatings and liquid coatings, including decorative paints, protective coatings and vehicle refinishes.

The powder coatings facility was a later addition and started production in 2018. It covers virtually all industry applications and supports the entire East China region.
