This acquisition, in the wake of Arkema’s recent startup of its coating resins and Coatex production plants on the Changshu site, will enable the Group to accelerate the development of its Coating Solutions segment in China and in Asia and to assist its customers in particular in fast-growing markets such as superabsorbents, paints, adhesives, water treatment, etc.
It represents a new milestone in Arkema’s growth strategy and the achievement of its 2016 targets, in particular by strengthening the Group’s position in high growth countries. Finally, it provides the Group with a highly competitive acrylic monomer industrial footprint in Asia. Production capacity for Arkema initially will be 160,000 t/year for a $240 M investment, with the option to raise it without delay to 320,000 t/year for a further $235 M investment.
