Michelman (Cincinnati, OH, US) celebrated the grand opening of the Michelman (China) Sustainability Center (MSC) on Jan. 17 at the company’s Shanghai offices located in the East Park of the Shanghai Pudong Kangqiao Industrial Zone.
Michelman manufactures coatings, surface modifiers, additives, and polymers for the coating, printing & packaging, and industrial manufacturing markets. The MSC is focused on reinforcing green manufacturing and will help Michelman better adapt its products and services to the Chinese market.
The new China-based Center is part of Michelman’s growth plan in the Asia Pacific region, and follows the opening of the Michelman Innovation Centre for Coatings (MICC) that was opened in Mumbai, India in January 2018.
“The MSC will foster both sustainable solutions and collaboration. It incorporates dedicated space, technical expertise, and technology and promotes collaborative innovation between partners, customers, service providers, and suppliers of multiple industries’ value chains,” says Ginger Merritt, vice president, Coatings and country manager, Michelman China. “This new facility will have a Technology & Marketing Office along with a fully equipped Development Center to develop solutions that are sustainable and green.”
