Arkema opens R & D center Changshu industrial site China

CHANGSHU, CHINA: Arkema opened its first R&D Centre in China on 17 October 2013 on the Changshu industrial site. At the cutting edge of technology, this new centre will provide development capacities as well as ideal local support for the Group’s customers in China and South-East Asia. Alongside the Group’s Kyoto Technical Centre (KTC) in Japan, it bolsters Arkema’s growth ambition in Asia, with the Group looking forward to achieving almost 30 per cent of its sales in fast growing regions by 2016.

The Changshu Research and Development Centre (CRDC) offers geographic and technical complementarity with the Group’s nine other research and development centres, in particular the Kyoto Centre in Japan.

The CRDC will enable Arkema to strengthen its links with the Chinese scientific community at large. It also boasts state-of-the-art equipment, including application laboratories for batteries, membranes and coatings, a centre of excellence for thermoplastics (extrusion, injection, etc), a process expertise centre (pilot reactor systems, polymerization, distillation), as well as a training centre for customers.
