Bostik recently announced it has inaugurated a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Changshu, China. The plant, which started up in late 2012, manufactures a range of products, including hot-melt adhesives, polyester, polyurethane and sealants. It occupies an area of 70,000 sq m; annual production capacity is expected to reach 80,000 tons.

“This is a very positive addition to an already strong portfolio of assets for Total in China, especially in specialty chemicals,” said Patrick Pouyanné, president of Refining and Chemicals fo Total. “It reinforces our commitment to supplying the rapidly growing market in the country. As you may know, Total was the first international oil and gas company to undertake offshore exploration in China, in the 1980s, and to participate in a refining joint-venture, in the 1990s. We currently have many successful businesses and partnerships here and employ more than 4,500 staff.”
