Michelman Asia Pacific Celebrates 20 Years
Michelman, Cincinnati, Ohio, is marking two decades of providing water-based coatings and surface modifying additives to the Asia Pacific markets with a capacity expansion of its manufacturing facilities.
The company recently invested in a 20-ton reactor, which will double its production capabilities and complement its existing 400kg, 6,000kg and 12,000kg reactors. This occasion also marks laying the foundation for improving its Advanced Technology Center.
The laboratory expansion will include advance equipment for barrier testing and for improving the characterization of both the physical and chemical properties of coatings. These capability improvements will benefit the company’s competitive benchmarking, customer service and training, and in-house expertise. This continued investment in the Asia Pacific region complements and supports past acquisition activity and organic growth in Asia, and it will allow Michelman to better serve its expanding customer base, particularly in China and India.
