Nouryon recently announced that it has been awarded the 2019 Responsible Care Merit Award by the Association of International Chemical Manufacturers (AICM) in China. The award reportedly recognizes the company’s performance and contribution to the development of a responsible chemical industry in the country.
“We take pride in our efforts to improve our economic, environmental, and social impact and it’s an honor to be recognized by AICM for our efforts in this area,” said Jack Li, Nouryon’s Sales director Asia. “We look forward to further collaborate with AICM and support its mission and to help local partners pursue excellence and enhance customer satisfaction.”
Nouryon started production in China in the early 1990s and currently employs nearly 1,400 people across nine locations. The company recently completed an expansion of its surfactants capacity at Boxing and is investing in capacity to serve the polymers market, including a €90 million (approximately $100.4 million) organic peroxides production facility in Tianjin and a major expansion of dicumyl peroxide production capacity at Ningbo.
“Our footprint in China is one of the most modern that we have in any part of the world and it enables us to service customers in a wide range of markets around the globe,” said Charlie Shaver, CEO. “Our investments in the country clearly demonstrate our commitment to strengthen our capabilities in the country.”
