Wacker opens silicone products  technical center in India Kolkata

MUNICH, GERMANY/KOLKATA, INDIA: Wacker is strengthening its presence in India by opening its expanded technical centre for silicone products in Amtala near Kolkata. Operated by the joint venture Wacker Metroark Chemicals Pvt Ltd (WMC), the enlarged regional competence centre now comprises state-of-the-art applications technology and test equipment for silicone products needed in the textiles, personal care and construction industry.

The chemical Group is thus responding to the growing demand for silicone products and the emerging needs of regional customers for technical support and expertise. The investment amounts to around half a million Euro. Continued growth in the Asian region prompted enlarging the technical centre in the north-east of India.

“Our top-notch equipped technical centre for silicone applications sets new standards in service, advice and transfer of expertise, offering our customers and business partners considerable added value. The investment in our facility shows Wacker’s commitment to the Indian market. It clearly indicates that our company continuously expands its technical expertise in Asia,” said Levi Cottington, Executive Director, Wacker Metroark Chemicals Pvt Ltd.
