Momentive starts new production plant in Chonburi, Thailand

COLUMBUS, US: Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc has started its new plant in Chonburi, Thailand, which significantly increases its capacity to produce acrylic-based resins and service customers in Southeast Asia. Following the successful start-up of the plant’s reactors, production is expected to gradually ramp up in the second quarter of 2013. The new plant significantly expands Momentive’s production of acrylic-based resins in the region and allows the company to broaden its product offering in this important growth region.

“We are pleased to start up this new facility on-time and on-budget. The new facility positions us to grow rapidly in southeast Asia and we are excited to provide a broader range of acrylic resins to meet the needs of our valued customers,” said Julia Harp, Senior Vice President, Momentive.
