A groundbreaking ceremony for the new plant was held.

Perstorp, a global leader in the specialty chemicals market, has unveiled its plan to invest in the construction of a new Pentaerythritol (Penta) production facility in Gujarat, India.

Representatives from the Perstorp Executive Leadership Team, were joined by government officials, employees and selected guests at a groundbreaking ceremony for the new plant. The world scale, green-field Gujarat plant will produce Penta, including the renewable grades of Voxtar, providing up to a 60% reduced carbon footprint.

Construction of the Gujarat plant started in October this year, with commercial production planned to start in Q1 2022. When fully operational, the site will employ 120 people. The investment will significantly expand Perstorp’s Penta production capacity, designed to produce 40 KT of Penta per annum from 2022.

Penta has a vast range of application areas, being an essential building block ingredient in coatings, as well synthetic lubricants and antioxidants. The Gujarat investment will reinforce Perstorp’s ability to meet growing demand, particularly in Asian markets, as well as offering various Penta qualities including Penta Mono and Di-Penta and, additionally, Calcium Formate.

Jan Secher, President & CEO, said “The new Penta plant in India marks a major milestone in our growth strategy and we are confident that this will not only increase the security of supply for current, as well as new, customers but aslo further strenghten our position long term as a sustainable and reliable partner in this region.”

“Perstorp is currently producing Penta at three different production plants around the globe: Germany, the USA and Sweden. India is a strategic market with a growing demand for coatings and Perstorp has been planning to strengthen its foothold here for several years,” explained Ulrika Andersson, EVP Business Area Specialty Polyols & Solutions.
