Switzerland-based specialty chemicals manufacturer Clariant International Ltd. has opened a regional headquarters and an ethoxylation plant in China, in a move to strengthen its presence in Southeast Asia and the Pacific region.

The regional headquarters, located in Singapore, will house Clariant’s Textile Chemicals business unit (BU), which has relocated from Reinach, Switzerland. The location currently employs 200 people and also will serve as the regional headquarters for Süd-Chemie AG, a Germany-based specialty chemicals company that Clariant acquired earlier this year. Süd-Chemie is expected to boost Clariant’s growth in the Asia Pacific region.

The new ethoxylation plant, to be located in Guangdong province, will be the company’s first in China. The 80,000-square-meter plant will have initial capacity of 50,000 metric tons.
