WACKER has opened a new international training center for
construction chemicals at its technical center in Dubai. The new WACKER ACADEMY
training and competence center offers an ideal platform for sector-specific
networking between customers, distribution partners, and WACKER specialists.
The group is promoting the transfer of expertise to its local customers and
business partners, thereby helping to further tap into the region’s
fast-growing market for modern construction chemicals. WACKER is simultaneously
celebrating the tenth anniversary of Wacker Chemicals Middle East, the group’s
local subsidiary in Dubai.
“The new WACKER ACADEMY is an important milestone in our Middle East growth strategy,” said Auguste Willems,
member of WACKER’s executive board. “As these facilities are unprecedented in
this region, we can reinforce our position as a technology leader for
high-quality chemical raw materials.”
The WACKER ACADEMY was established on the Dubai technical center’s premises in response
to a rising number of training inquiries in the region. The technical center
itself is a regional competence center for modern construction chemicals and
their applications. WACKER specialists at the center test formulations
containing local raw materials under customers’ specific climatic conditions.
In addition, the technical center offers practical advice on problems relating
to construction chemicals, and it helps customers to implement internationally
applicable quality standards.
