Integrated Technology and Marketing Facility will Accelerate Performance for Customers

Celanese Corporation announced that Celanese China has signed an agreement with Shanghai Zhangjiang(Group)Co. Ltd to establish an integrated technology and marketing facility in the Zhangjiang High-Tech Park, Shanghai that combines the headquarters for Celanese's Asia businesses, customer application development and research and development center.

Upon completion in early 2010, the 20,000 square-meter facility will join together the company's business segments in Asia, including Acetyl Intermediates, Advanced Engineered Materials and Consumer and Industrial Specialties. This consolidation & integration will deliver synergies that will be instrumental in creating added value for customers, with shorter lead times, greater flexibility and cost advantages.

In addition, combining Celanese's R&D center in Asia within this facility will bring together 300 to 400 Celanese scientists, design engineers and technical experts under one roof, significantly accelerating the transition, adaptation and development of Celanese's state-of-the-art chemical technologies to better serve customers in Asia.

“This R&D and application development center is the next phase of our investment in China and Asia that further positions us to meet our customers' needs in the fastest growing region of the world,” said John J. Gallagher, III, executive vice president and president of Acetyl Intermediates and Celanese Asia. “The Zhangjiang High-Tech Park's award-winning infrastructure and support will enable Celanese to deliver world-class support for our customers in Asia.”

Celanese also operates an integrated chemical complex in Nanjing, China that houses seven operating units in one world-scale facility that utilizes shared infrastructure and resources. The Nanjing complex is one of the lowest-cost, most energy efficient facilities in the world and benefits from Celanese's leading production technologies. In addition, Celanese recently announced that its Asian shared service functions will be consolidated and integrated at the Nanjing facility, further enhancing the company's productivity and efficiency.
