Lord Corp., Cary, NC, recently moved into its new plant located in Shanghai, China.

The facility, located at 9 Luo Gong Road in the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park, represents the first phase of the company’s expansion plans. The 6,037-square-meter plant was built to accommodate the rapid growth of LORD products, particularly the LORD Chemlok®Adhesives product line.

The new location replaces LORD Corp.’s existing facility located in Zhang Jiang, Shanghai, and expands production capacity as much as three times. More than 10 process improvements have been made to the new facility, including an advanced foam fire suppression system with a centralized computer controlled system for monitoring and controlling most aspects of the manufacturing system, which can simultaneously shut down all processing equipment, pumps and solvent valves in the event of an accident.
