ADCO Global announced that its Kömmerling
subsidiary has opened its new production plant in Nanjing, China. The
custom built plant will manufacture sealants and adhesives for the
Insulating Glass (IG), solar photovoltaic, structural glazing and
transportation markets in China and Asia.
Commenting on the new
development, Dick Spalton,
Managing Director, Kömmerling, said; "This new plant is a response to
the growing demands from our customers in the rapidly expanding Asian
market. Demand for our products and expertise in the Far East is
continuing to grow. With the opening of this plant, we will be able to
provide our customers with a far more efficient and economic supply
chain, which will reduce both freight costs and delivery times."
The plant, which utilizes
raw materials produced
in Asia, is already producing Polysulphide and Silicone for the IG
market. The Nanjing plant will also have the capacity to manufacture
polyurethane and butyl adhesives and sealants in 2011. The new plant
complements Adco Global's existing production units based in the U.S.A.
