Global specialty chemicals manufacturer Sartomer Co. has announced the opening of a new manufacturing plant in Nansha, in the Guangzhou province of China. The facility will manufacture specialty acrylate monomers and oligomers used as raw materials in products such as paints, inks, coatings, adhesives, circuit boards, flooring, CDs, and DVDs. Sartomer will sell materials manufactured at the new plant to customers in Asia, Europe and the United States.

“The Nansha project is Sartomer’s first major investment in China,” said Dr. Luigi Colantuoni, president of Sartomer. “We are proud that the production process used in China is extremely clean and environmentally friendly. It follows the same high environmental standards that are currently in place at our other global sites in the U.S. and Europe.”

The entire facility models Sartomer’s plant in Chatham, VA. The new plant includes lab space, offices, and conference rooms, and features integrated computer-based technology for process monitoring and control. The site also features state-of-the-art emergency response capabilities and a Modern Safety Management® system. It will employ about 100 people when fully staffed.
