Published on 2005-07-06. Author : SpecialChem

Degussa AG, Dusseldorf, intends to construct a facility in China for manufacturing the standard monomer methyl methacrylate (MMA) as well as various methacrylate specialties. The world-scale facility could come on stream in 2008/2009.

"Our plans for an MMA facility in China underscore our global growth strategy. This facility would see us consolidating our position as a leading global manufacturer of methacrylates", emphasizes Dr. Manfred Spindler, Head of the Degussa Specialty Polymers Division.

MMA and specialty monomers are components used in a wide variety of applications, such as scratch-proof paints, top-quality adhesives and modern interior trims for cars.

As the global market leader in specialty chemicals, Degussa uses its innovative products and system solutions to create something indispensable for its customers' success. It's an approach we sum up in our claim of "creating essentials". In fiscal 2004 its 45,000 employees generated sales of 11,2 billion euros, and operating profits (EBIT) of 965 million euros.
