"This completed investment in the Zhenjiang Economic and Technological Development Zone marks another milestone in our commitment to expand capability and capacity in China, one of the most important strategic markets for Clariant. We are pursuing a dedicated strategy aimed at increasing and sharpening the focus on China. I am proud to see this being executed successfully and am excited about its benefits going forward”, said Christian Kohlpaintner, member of Clariant's Executive Committee, at the opening ceremony.

Production of micronized waxes and synergistic additive solutions

The newly opened facilities are dedicated to the production of "Ceridust" micronized waxes and "AddWorks" synergistic additive solutions, both of which are used in various applications across the plastics, coatings and ink industries. Stephan Lynen, Head of Clariant’s Business Unit Additives, told the audience: "We already have a strong focus on China, with our additives for plastics, coatings, and consumer industries. With the new investment and our enhanced innovation capabilities, our focus on this market is being strengthened further. These two fully-owned production facilities complement the company’s long-standing regional network of commercial and technical support not only for China, but for the whole of Asia.”
