SHANGHAI, CHINA: Wacker Chemie AG opened its new company headquarters for the Greater China region (Mainland China and Taiwan) in Shanghai on 14 December 2012. The new Shanghai Centre, which occupies some 10,000 square metre, features offices for marketing, sales and administrative functions along with numerous laboratories for R&D and applications technology. It also boasts the latest equipment for Wacker experts to adapt silicone and polymer products to the specific requirements of their Chinese customers.

In launching the new research and testing laboratories in collaboration with its customers, the Munich-based chemical group is seeking to further expand its technology leadership in high-quality silicone and polymer products for the Chinese market.

“The Greater China region has evolved into our single most important market. China is the world’s largest chemical market. We expect Chinese demand for high-quality chemical products to keep rising in the years ahead,” said Rudolf Staudigl, CEO, Wacker.
