Phase 1 of the 50,000m2 site, at a total investment of EUR 45.61 million, is complete and fully operational marked by the official opening ceremony in April 2015. The facility comprises 3,000m2 offices and laboratories, 5,000m2 warehousing and a production plant capable of an output in excess of 30,000 tonnes of Thor’s in-can and dry film "Acticide” biocides, extensive range of liquid and solid "Microcare” quats and "Aflammit” flame retardant products.

Market expansions in China, Australia, Taiwan, Korea and Japan

Thor’s Mark Jamieson, Regional Director, Asia Pacific confirmed: "This new facility will ensure ready product availability, not only to the Chinese domestic market, but also to the whole region, in particular our expanding markets in Australia, Taiwan, Korea and Japan.”

This major new development for the Group comes on top of the recent expansion of a similar multi-million dollar facility in Querétaro Mexico to supply the Americas which, along with its principal European facility in Speyer, Germany, and six further manufacturing sites worldwide, strengthens Thor’s position as a global supplier of speciality chemicals.
