Huntsman Textile Effects opens 12th FDC in Sao Paolo
Oct '11
Huntsman Textile Effects has officially opened its 12th Formulation and Distribution Center (FDC) in Sao Paolo, Brazil that further enhances the company's ability to shorten the supply chain in its Americas markets. The FDC will focus on the production of dyeing auxiliaries, pre-treatment and finishing products for local customers.

Huntsman TE is the global leader in developing total textile solutions across all aspects of the textile chain. We are committed as the global leader in developing sustainable, high performing processing and effects chemicals that have low environmental impact and at the same time allow our customers to make significant reductions both in terms of energy and time. Our team of dedicated, experienced personnel mean we offer on the ground support and full product stewardship from formulation to delivery and beyond.

For Textile Effects, the Brazil market represents one of the fast-growing, dynamic markets of increasing importance. The new FDC further strengthens Huntsman's operations, allowing it to explore local production of chemical and textile products that match premium global standards and use latest innovative technology.

“With the opening of our new low cost production facility for formulated chemicals in Sao Paolo, we will considerably increase our competitiveness and flexibility in textile chemicals in the growing Brazilian textile market,” said Mr Rohit Aggarwal, Vice President of Huntsman Textile Effects for Apparel and Home Textiles. “Huntsman Textile Effects is committed to sustainability and looks to develop more competitive locally-sourced formulated products for the local market,” he added.

Mr Monte Edlund, Vice President of Advanced Materials Americas speaking at the opening of the FDC Sao Paolo said: “We are delighted that our Textile Effects division is opening this FDC as it means they can offer a truly bespoke end to end service for their customers across Brazil. It will also result in greater integration between our two divisions, Advanced Materials and Textile Effects within Americas and will ensure greater leverage of existing Huntsman business infrastructure in Brazil."
