The Munich-based chemical group WACKER is strengthening its presence in South India by expanding the local sales office in Chennai, India. The enlarged office, operated by the joint venture Wacker Metroark Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. (WMC), will allow WACKER to provide optimum local support to customers and business partners in South India, thereby helping to further tap into the fast-growing markets for high-quality silicones and chemical raw materials in India.

Vigorous growth in India's economy, particularly in the automotive, textile and electronics sector, prompted enlarging the local sales office in the south-east of India. “The region around Chennai is renowned for its dynamic and fast growing industries”, explained O'Neil Remedios, Vice President Sales & Marketing at Wacker Metroark Chemicals, during yesterday's opening ceremony. As he pointed out, the local office aims to serve the expanding markets in the region, enabling WACKER to reinforce its position as a technology leader for high-quality silicone products and chemical raw materials.

For this reason, WMC's local sales office in South India has moved into bigger premises in the center of Chennai. The office will be operated by the joint venture WMC, focusing on silicone emulsions, silicone resins, silanes and sealants for the automotive, electronics, textile, leather and personal care industry.

“Our primary goal is to offer our Indian customers and partners products and solutions perfectly matched to their requirements and thereby help them to enhance their own business success. The expansion of our sales office allows us to provide better local support than ever”, stated Soumitra Mukherjee, Managing Director of WMC, at the opening ceremony.

Wacker Metroark Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. is headquartered in Kolkata and is responsible for all manufacturing and marketing activities in the Indian subcontinent relating to WACKER silicone products. The joint venture was set up in 1998 and is active in greater India's most important trade centers with sales offices in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Chennai, as well as in Dhaka (Bangladesh). Key markets are the textile, personal-care, construction, coatings, plastics, adhesives and packaging sectors.
