Huntsman to Build Technology Center in Shanghai
Construction for the new ATC is expected to begin in January, with completion planned for mid-2013. In parallel, part of the existing Technology Center will be converted into an auditorium and display area, which together with the new facility will form an integrated technology and innovation campus.
“The expansion of our research and technology capability in this key region reflects Huntsman’s desire and commitment to grow in partnership with our customers by delivering innovative solutions more effectively and efficiently,” said Anthony P Hankins, CEO of the company’s Asia-Pacific business. “The Huntsman technology center will be completely aligned to support Asia’s fast-growing industries, including developing new energy-saving material solutions for the strategic industries as outlined in China’s 12th Five-Year Plan.”
