ESSEN, GERMANY: Evonik will open a new branch in Chengdu, Sichuan province, China in the first quarter of 2012. Located in the heart of Chengdu’s central business area, the new branch will help the company tap additional business opportunities in western China.

With the government’s ambitious strategy in China’s 12th five-year plan, Chengdu is gradually set to play a leading role in development of the western region in China. This move of Evonik will expand the company’s presence in China and enable Evonik to further explore growth opportunities in this region. “Chengdu has become the economic and financial hub of West China and already has a complete chemical value chain. Our presence in the area will benefit existing customers, with faster and more responsive services,” said Dr Hans-Josef Ritzert, Regional President Greater China, Evonik Industries.

A team that consists of members from all business units of the company will start to work in the new Chengdu branch from this year. The team will focus on providing solutions based on Evonik’s entire product portfolio mainly in the area of automotive, electronics, coatings, feed, health care and construction industries. The company also plans to increase the staff number along with the business expansion in western China in the future.
