New application development
With over 20 years of experience in the industry, the new center is headed by Robert Souerwine, Technical Director of Coatings & Construction: “Our move from the original North Wales location to Brenntag’s Innovation Hub in Allentown allowed us to redesign and utilize a larger, more efficient space, with state-of-the-art equipment. ”
The new center is run by an experienced team of industry experts and chemists and is fully equipped to handle new application development in the adhesives, coatings, construction, elastomers, and sealants market segments.
