To meet the demands of its fast growing Asian markets, Michelman has invested in additional production equipment at its Singapore manufacturing facility that increases its capacity by 40%. The investment complements and supports acquisition activity and organic growth by Michelman in Asia. This will allow the company to serve its expanding customer base in a better way, particularly in China and India.
Michelman has aggressively enhanced its base in Asia with the recent acquisition of long-time sales partner Supack in Mumbai, and a growing sales and support staff and laboratory facility in Shanghai, China.
According to Steven Wong, VP-managing director, Michelman Asia-Pacific, “With a decade of robust growth in Asia, this investment was needed to allow us to continue developing and delivering advanced materials that meet the needs of our customers. With our increased capacity in Singapore, coupled with manufacturing facilities in the US, Germany and Belgium, and joint venture manufacturing in Japan, we can satisfy demands faster than ever across the entire Asia-Pacific region.”
