WACKER opens new Technical Center in Indonesia

Wacker Chemie AG has expanded its presence in Southeast Asia by opening a new technical center for construction and adhesives applications in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta. The technical facility serves as a development and testing laboratory for dispersible polymer powders and dispersions, which are used as binders for the regional building, paint, coatings and adhesives industries. By expanding its local expertise in development, applications technology and service, WACKER is able to optimally support customers and business partners in the region. It is thus further opening up Southeast Asia’s rapidly developing markets for high-quality construction polymers and chemical raw materials.

The reason for this increased commitment to the region is ongoing growth, particularly in the building industry. “Southeast Asia, and Indonesia in particular, offer promising growth opportunities for WACKER. Demand for construction chemical specialties has risen noticeably over recent years, especially for our dispersible polymer powders and dispersions,” said Christian Hartel of WACKER’s Executive Board during the opening ceremony. Since 2007, the company already operates a technical center in Singapore to support customers in the region in the development of new products and applications for electronics, textiles, automotive, coatings, construction and health care products. To meet the increasing customer demands in Indonesia, the Group is investing continuously in its local services and has now established a new competence center in Jakarta.
