The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) recently announced the official opening of its coating materials plant in western China. The new facility, located in the Cheng Mei Petrochemical Zone, will produce acrylic emulsion and additives to address the growing needs of the architectural and industrial coating markets.

Western China is at the forefront of the nation’s Belt and Road initiative. Sustainable urbanization and infrastructure upgrade in the region provide tremendous business opportunities for Dow.

The plant is Dow’s first manufacturing site in western China and is evidence of Dow’s firm commitment to explore China’s emerging western inland markets, as well as its support of the Belt and Road initiative of the Chinese government.

“Our innovative and sustainable solutions align well with the market needs in western China. The new facility is part of Dow’s commitment to strengthen its local manufacturing and service footprints to better serve the market,” said Yoke Loon Lim, president of Dow Greater China. In 2012, Dow opened its western China business center in Chengdu to provide on-the-ground sales, service, and technical support to local customers and partners.

Ashok Kalyana, business director, Dow Coating Materials Asia Pacific, commented, “We are very excited about our newly added local production facility for sustainably advantaged coating materials. With outstanding features like low odor, low VOC emissions, and high performance, our products help customers better meet the increasingly stringent environment and quality standards of the Chinese government.”

The plant will be run as a role model of sustainable operations. Wastewater, waste gas, and solid wastes will be treated with Dow’s advanced techniques and in compliance with China’s national and local sustainability requirements. In October 2017, the plant was awarded a government encouragement fund totaling RMB 3.19 million by the Sichuan provincial government in recognition of its industry-leading sustainable operations and products.

Dow currently operates 17 manufacturing sites and 10 business centers with approximately 5,000 employees across Greater China, which is now the second largest international market for Dow globally.
