Bayer MaterialScience Builds Coating Raw Materials Plant
“In keeping with our mission statement, ‘Science for a better life,’ our company develops innovative and sustainable solutions as answers to global megatrends,” said Marijn Dekkers, Ph.D., CEO. “One example is increasing mobility around the world, resulting in rising demand for high-performance automotive coatings. With this investment, Bayer underscores its commitment to the Leverkusen site and to our region.”
“We must adjust our capacities accordingly if we are to meet the rising demand for coating and adhesive raw materials,” said Daniel Meyer, head of the Coatings, Adhesives, Specialties business unit and member of the Executive Committee of Bayer MaterialScience. “We are therefore making targeted investments in the individual regions in order to maintain or further expand our leading market position.”
The new multipurpose plant will be integrated into existing HDI and IPDI production at the Leverkusen site and uses modern and innovative process technologies for the efficient production of both raw materials. This will reportedly enable the company to supply its customers more flexibly and quickly than before.
