Nalco Targets Growth in China With Opening of New Manufacturing Plant and Research Center

In order to better serve and support the expanding Chinese marketplace, Nalco recently opened two new facilities. The expansion includes a recently completed $25-million manufacturing plant in Nanjing and the dedication of a new research and development center at its existing site in Suzhou, near Shanghai.

"China is a very important market for Nalco," said Erik Fyrwald, Nalco Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "These new facilities allow us to provide better services and newer technologies to our customers faster and better than any of our competitors."

The new 240,000 sq. foot (22,300 square meter) plant in the Nanjing Chemical Industry Park has 29 employees and an annual production capacity of 37,000 metric tons. The existing facility has space to expand to 75,000 metric tons per year and the 15-acre (60,000 square meter) site is designed to allow double that capacity for a potential total production of 150,000 metric tons per year.

The new research center in Suzhou will provide technical support throughout Northern Asia and allow Nalco to more quickly deploy new technologies in the region. The 16 scientists and engineers currently working in the center are focused on paper process chemicals and industrial water treatment.
