Americhem celebrates 10th year of China plant

Global marketer of colour and additive solutions for plastics and synthetic fibres, Americhem Inc is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Suzhou, China plant.

Americhem's presence in China began in 2004, when a representative sales office opened in Shanghai.

“The staff in the early years helped build demand for Americhem products, which were initially supplied from the company's US plants,” Americhem said in a press release.

The Suzhou plant construction also commenced in 2004 and was dedicated in 2006 with a Chinese grand opening ceremony featuring a traditional lion dance.

According to the company, other milestones include Americhem China's first trade show, the 2006 ShanghaiTex exhibition, which brought together industry leaders from throughout the Asia Pacific region.

“The plant was certified to the ISO 9001 quality management system in 2008 and was subsequently accredited to the ISO 13485 medical device standard in 2015,” it added.

The growth of the business in the Asia Pacific region picked up to the point where a major expansion of the Suzhou plant took place in 2014.

The expansion doubled the size of the plant and allowed it to add manufacturing lines, including those used to manufacture products of Americhem's sister company, Infinity LTL Engineered Compounds in China.

Stanley Teoh, Americhem's MD for the Asia Pacific region said, “What started out as an empty lot in Suzhou Industrial Park became our first plant in the region, and we have since doubled the plant size and capacity.”

John Deignan, president of Americhem added, “What started as a brand-new facility has grown into the substantial business we see today and I can't wait to see what happens in the next ten years and beyond.” (AR)
