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.
