“Nouryon is considering several locations in Southeast Asia for the new facility because the region is a key growth market of the global chemical industry and presents great business opportunities for our organization,” said Sobers Sethi, Senior Vice President of Emerging Markets and China at Nouryon. “This facility will reflect our strategy of growing with our customers by providing innovative and sustainable technologies, while leveraging high-growth end-markets.”
Nouryon has produced its Bermocoll range of products for over 50 years, and today they’re sold in more than 80 countries around the world. Water soluble and virtually odorless, Bermocoll provides important sustainability and performance benefits for water-based paints and coatings, including improved spatter and sag resistance, and better color stability and hiding power. In addition to the Paints and Coatings end-market, Bermocoll is also used in the Building and Construction industry as an ingredient in dry-mix mortars, helping to improve adhesion, flexibility, water retention and workability.
Nouryon is one of the leading global suppliers to the Paints and Coatings end-market, providing cellulose ethers, colloidal silica, and engineered polymers with production plants in China, Finland, the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden.
