About Ashland

Ashland is specialising in HEC sales and production and has manufacturing sites located in China, the Netherlands, and the United States. Key markets for HEC include coatings, personal care, oil and gas, construction, and pharmaceuticals.

Maximisation offers better return on capital

"This capacity expansion enables us to support our customers’ growing demand for HEC,” said Chris Brown, vice president and general manager, Ashland Coatings.  "Continuing to maximise our current network provides Ashland with a better return on capital versus building a new plant while also strengthening our cost position.”
