Adco Global to open new sealant/adhesive facility in China
Kömmerling, Germany, a subsidiary of Adco Global Inc., Lincolnshire, Ill., signed agreements with Nanjing High Technology Zone to build and operate a plant in Nanjing, China, according to an Adco release Aug. 27.
That plant will manufacture sealants and adhesives for the construction and transportation markets in China and the rest of Asia.
Kömmerling already has considerable presence in China and surrounding Asian countries, producing polysulfide and polyisobutylene hotmelt sealants used in the insulating glass industry.
Construction of Phase 1 of the new facility is already underway and operations will
commence early 2009, according to the release.
The new facility will use raw materials produced in Asia and enable increased penetration of the rapidly expanding Asian markets while complementing Adco Global’s
existing production units in the United States and Germany.
