Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. recently announced the startup of its new plant in Chonburi, Thailand. The plant, reportedly constructed to minimize its potential impact on the surrounding area, significantly increased the company’s capacity to produce acrylic-based resins and service customers locally.

“The engineering design delivers enhanced energy preservation through high-efficiency heating and cooling systems,” said Julia Harp, senior vice president. “Improvements gained through automation and the utilization of the latest generation of technologies allow us to deliver both consistent product quality and achieve emission levels that are well within regulatory guidelines.”

The site, located on land purchased by the company in the Pinthong Industrial Estate Park, produces a range of acrylic resins. The manufacturing design and operations of the Chonburi site are reportedly aligned with the company’s overall sustainability initiatives. These initiatives drive an integrated business approach that reportedly creates long-term stakeholder value through responsible stewardship of assets and products, the environment, and a commitment to social responsibility.
