Kömmerling’s parent company, Adco Europe Holdings, has announced the opening of its new production plant in Nanjing, China. The custom-built plant will manufacture sealants and adhesives for the burgeoning insulating glass (IG), solar photovoltaic, structural glazing, and transportation markets in the Far East.

Dick Spalton, managing director of Kömmerling Europe, said, “This new plant is a response to the growing demands from our customers in the rapidly expanding Asian market. While some of our more established markets are still struggling to come out of recession, demand for our products and expertise in the Far East is continuing to grow. With the opening of this plant, we will be able to provide our customers with a far more efficient and economic supply chain, which will reduce both freight costs and delivery times.”

The plant, which uses raw materials produced in Asia, is already producing polysulfides for the IG market; silicone-based products will come online in the next few months. The Nanjing plant will also have capacity to manufacture butyl and polyurethane sealants in 2011. The new plant complements Adco Global’s existing production units based in the U.S. and Germany.
