OXFORDSHIRE, UK: Infineum broke ground for its new salicylate plant in Jurong Island, Singapore, the first for the company outside Europe. The contract for the engineering, procurement and construction of the new plant has been awarded to Chiyoda Singapore Pte Ltd. The new plant is expected to be fully operational in the fourth quarter of 2013. The new facility has been designed incorporating the latest technologies and practices in chemical manufacturing with minimal human intervention.

“We constantly review our supply capability to ensure that we are able to consistently fulfill our customers’ current and future needs. Strengthening our supply reliability, one of our top priorities, has been a key driver for this investment. The Singapore facility will be an integrated part of the Infineum global supply network. Singapore was selected for its strategic location in the Asia-Pacific, its robust infrastructure, the availability of skilled workforce and the outstanding safety performance of the existing operations,” said Sara Lefcourt, Vice President, Infineum.
