ASK Chemicals, a leading supplier of high-performance resins and materials for the foundry industry, is further expanding its position in China and the Asia-Pacific region with the opening of a new production facility.
ASK Chemicals celebrated the inauguration of the new plant in Zhenjiang together with employees. Production at the new site will be ramped up gradually, starting with the manufacture of the leading inorganic binder technology INOTEC, followed by the production of ASK Chemicals' water-based coatings and feeders. The products manufactured will serve the growing Chinese market as well as neighboring regions and countries in Southeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Demand for environmentally friendly solutions
The new production facility serves the growing demand for solutions to further decarbonization, especially in China. A key pillar in ASK Chemicals' strategy to meet the growing demand for environmentally friendly, zero-emission products is the accelerated launch of its INOTEC inorganic binder technology.
As a 100% emission-free binder technology, INOTEC offers environmental benefits to the foundry industry. In addition, the inorganic process brings technical and economic advantages that will ultimately contribute to reducing CO2 emissions and achieving China's dual-carbon targets.
Closer to customers thanks to localization
Asia Pacific is the world's most dynamic and developing region and a key target market for ASK Chemicals.
Luiz Totti, Executive Vice President Asia of ASK Chemicals, said, "Asia Pacific is an important growth market for ASK Chemicals, with China playing a key role for future growth. Our new plant in Zhenjiang underlines our commitment there. We are confident that we will further strengthen our market position. With this investment, we will be able to offer even better and more comprehensive products, services and solutions to the Chinese and Asia-Pacific industries."
The company has established INOTEC production facilities in China and South Korea to be even closer to local customers. Both locations have the potential to not only serve the market, but also support customers with greater flexibility and proactively respond to requirements, both now and in the future.
