Michelman is celebrating two decades of supplying water-based coatings and surface modifying additives to the Asia Pacific markets with a capacity expansion of its manufacturing facilities. It has invested in a 20-tonne reactor, which will double its production capabilities and complement its existing 400 kilogram, 6000 kilogram, and 12000 kilogram reactors.

This occasion also marks laying the foundation for improving its Advanced Technology Centre. The laboratory expansion will include advance equipment for barrier testing and for improving the characterisation of both the physical and chemical properties of coatings. These capability improvements will benefit its competitive benchmarking, customer service and training and in-house expertise.

A capacity expansion opening ceremony will be held on November 28th, 2017 at Michelman’s Singapore Technology Centre along with feature presentations from Steve Shifman, president and CEO of Michelman, as well as Gian Yi-Hsen, regional president, Americas, of the Singapore Economic Development Board. The event will include a plant and laboratory tour which will showcase the new reactor as well as other state-of-the-art testing equipment.

“Our high-performing associates, along with our partners and customers are to be thanked for the company’s success in this region,” exclaims Steven Wong, vice president and managing director of Michelman Asia Pacific.

This continued investment in the Asia Pacific region complements and supports past acquisition activity and organic growth in Asia, and will allow Michelman to better serve its expanding customer base, particularly in China and India.

The Singapore location will not only serve as an Advanced Manufacturing Site and Technology Centre, but also a Regional Logistics hub and Shared Service Centre for Finance and HR activities. “Singapore is proud to be a key manufacturing site for Michelman over the last two decades, and today’s expansion is a testament to their commitment to strengthen their footprint here to serve growth markets in Asia,” said Cindy Koh, director, Energy and Chemicals of the Singapore Economic Development Board. “We look forward to further success together.” (SV)
