WACKER, the Munich-based chemical company, is strengthening its presence in South East Asia by opening a Philippine representative office in Manila. 
 
Opened yesterday, the office will distribute products of the chemical business divisions WACKER SILICONES, WACKER POLYMERS and WACKER BIOSOLUTIONS, catering for customers in the construction, adhesives, automotive, electronics, textile, leather, personal care and food industry. 
 
It will thus allow WACKER to further expand its global presence and footprint across the region and provide optimum local support to its customers and business partners. The office in Makati City is WACKER’s fifth in South East Asia.
 
For more than 30 years, WACKER has been a preeminent tech-nology leader in construction chemicals across South East Asia (SEA), providing a wide range of products and solutions including dispersible polymer powders for skim coats, tile adhesives, self-leveling flooring compounds, and water-proofing membranes as well as silicone sealants and adhesives. The Manila office will better serve the Philippine customers, supporting the company’s growth in the region.
 
The representative office does not only cater to the construction business, but also markets other WACKER products, including silanes, silicone emulsions, silicone resins, and sealants for the automotive, electronics, textile, leather, and personal care industry, as well as cystein and cyclodextrin products for food manufacturers. “Our primary goal is to offer our customers and partners in the Philippines products and solutions perfectly matched to their require-ments and thereby help them to enhance their own business success. 
 
The opening of our office allows us to provide better local support than ever”, said SEA Managing Director Patrick de Wolf at the opening ceremony in Manila.
 
WACKER now has 25 sales offices in Asia, five of them located in South East Asia: Bangkok (Thailand), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Jakarta (Indonesia), Manila (the Philippines), and Singapore, which also is the company’s regional headquarters.
