Johnson Matthey established a site for a new catalyst plant in Brazil

LONDON, UK: Johnson Matthey has established a site for a new catalyst plant in Brazil. As part of Johnson Matthey Process Technologies, the factory will initially manufacture catalysts for hydrogen production. The facility is expected to start operating by the end of 2014, and will initially employ around 15 people.

“For a long time we have recognised the strategic importance of Brazil and South America. This investment demonstrates our long term commitment to manufacturing in Brazil. Beyond this, it is our intention to expand our manufacturing capability here to include products such as catalysts and adsorbents for gasto liquids and gas purification,” said Geoff Otterman, Divisional Director, Johnson Matthey.
