Clariant opens manufacturing facility for packaging solutions in China

SHANGHAI, CHINA: Clariant, a world leader in Specialty Chemicals, announced the inauguration of a new manufacturing facility, acquired through their recent acquisition of healthcare packaging company VitaPac. The Dongguan plant, located in Guangdong province in southeast China, will enhance Clariant’s existing portfolio of controlled atmosphere packaging solutions.

Under Clariant Business Unit Masterbatches, the Dongguan plant specializes in the manufacture of a full range of high quality desiccant packets primarily for customers in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and food industries but also for a range of complementary active packaging products. This plant will join Clariant’s existing global manufacturing sites for healthcare packaging in Changshu (Jiangsu, China), Belen (New Mexico, USA), Romorantin (France) and Kings Park (Australia).

“By enlarging our global footprint we can be closer to our customers in the Asia Pacific region while simultaneously offering a wider range of products to the global market. By having another large base for packet production, we will successfully support the market’s need for business continuity,” said Andy Walti, Head of Healthcare Packaging, Clariant.
