AkzoNobel doubles capacity in China

Apr 7, 2014 by Triton Staff

AkzoNobel has doubled production capacity for packaging coatings with expansion of its industrial site near Shanghai in China. The addition of production lines for coatings, epoxy and polyester resins was begun with an initial investment of about 14 million euros in 2014.


“China remains one of our most important growth markets,” said Conrad Keijzer, member of AkzoNobel’s executive committee responsible for performance coatings. “By expanding capacity at our Songjiang site, we are well positioned to capture the ongoing demand from consumer and construction markets.”


“The extended capabilities and used product lines will not only help us to better serve customers in the country, but will also allow us to supply resins for our own local production of coil and packaging coatings,” said AB Ghosh, managing director of AkzoNobel’s industrial coatings.


The companies portfolio includes Dulux, Sikkens, International and Eka.
