Oxea recently announced that its specialty esters plant in Nanjing, China, is now mechanically complete. After a construction period of slightly more than 15 months, the new state-of-the-art plant is currently in the commissioning and startup phase. The new plant is Oxea’s first production site in Asia, and is intended to complement the company’s three existing specialty esters plants in Europe. In addition, it will boost Oxea’s global production capacity for specialty esters by 40%. 

“With the startup of the new plant, we will be able to serve our customers in China and the Asia-Pacific region better and will at the same time strengthen Oxea’s leading global market position further,” said Miguel Mantas, Executive Board member. “In view of rising customer demand, it is important to note that here in Nanjing we will have sufficient space and infrastructure to implement further expansions, also for other product lines.”
