ExxonMobil to establish compounding agreement with R&P

ExxonMobil Chemical will improve the supply of its specialty compounds in Asia Pacific following the establishment of a compounding agreement with Resin & Pigment Technologies Pte. Ltd. (R&P), a subsidiary of EnGro Corporation Limited. Under the agreement, R&P will manufacture a broad range of ExxonMobil Chemical's specialty compounds for use in automotive interior and exterior applications, appliances and consumer products.

The R&P facility is located on Jurong Island, Singapore, just two kilometers from ExxonMobil Chemical's petrochemical complex. ExxonMobil Chemical will leverage its global portfolio of specialty plastics and elastomers using the Singapore complex as the primary source of polyolefins for the production of its specialty compounds. The R&P facility is ISO 9001 certified and recently achieved ISO/TS 16949 automotive certification.

Specialty compounds, such as ExxonMobil's line of Exxtral performance polyolefins, will be produced at R&P's facility to supply customers throughout Asia Pacific. This new capacity, which can be expanded significantly in line with growing needs, will improve ExxonMobil Chemical's global supply. ExxonMobil Chemical will utilize its existing sales network and service infrastructure to serve customers across the region.

"Because this simplifies the supply chain, we can respond more quickly to changes in demand," said Jim McKinley, manager, ExxonMobil Chemical specialty compounds business. "Our aim is to provide more efficient, larger-scale production close to the source of integrated feedstock supply. By offering a wider range of high-performance materials from the region's Singapore hub, our Asia Pacific customers will benefit from more efficient service and supply.”

Earlier this year, ExxonMobil Chemical announced the start-up of a new $20 million specialty compounding facility in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with an annual capacity of 40 thousand tons. This facility complements ExxonMobil Chemical's compounding capability in Lillebonne, France, and additional compounding capacity from regional service providers.
