The Munich-based chemical group Wacker is strengthening its presence in India by opening its expanded technical center for silicone products in Amtala near Kolkata. Operated by the joint venture Wacker Metroark Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. (WMC), the enlarged regional competence center now comprises state-of-the-art applications technology and test equipment for silicone products needed in the textiles, personal care and construction industry. The chemical Group is thus responding to the growing demand for silicone products and the emerging needs of regional customers for technical support and expertise. The investment amounts to around half EUR 0.5 million.

Continued growth in the Asian region prompted enlarging the technical center in the north-east of India. The extended center, now spanning about 1,800 square meters and furnished with state-of-the-art equipment, supports silicone customers in the personal care, textile, automotive and construction sector in the development of new products and applications for the region’s markets.

Wacker Metroark Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. (WMC) is headquartered in Kolkata and responsible for production, marketing and sales activities in the Indian subcontinent relating to Wacker silicone products. Key markets are the textile, personal care, construction, coatings, transmission and distribution, automotive, plastics, adhesives, and packaging sectors. The company also markets sealants, silanes and pyrogenic silica in India. WMC’s current workforce in India numbers over 180 employees.
