ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands -- IMCD Coatings, part of IMCD Group, announces the opening of its fourth laboratory. After three successful ones in Europe, the fourth laboratory is located in Mumbai, India to serve the specific needs of the Asia-Pacific market. It will cover all Coatings market segments with special focus on decorative paints and pigment preparations. During the opening ceremony that will take place on 11 March, IMCD will host a technical seminar, bringing together important local and international market players.

This event marks further strengthening of IMCD's technical competence and their positioning in the Coatings industry. The existing laboratories in Europe, that have been active for a number of years now, have helped build an extensive technical knowledge. Dr. Sami Valkama, IMCD Coatings Technical Manager, says: "We regard penetration of research & development crucial for business growth. Our customers value the support we give in solving formulation problems, handling analytical services and offering tailor-made solutions. Our suppliers, on the other hand, benefit from our capability to take over expansive technical support services - enabling them to focus on their own targets. Furthermore, our technical knowledge qualifies us a reliable partner to identify and realise new development opportunities", concludes Dr. Valkama.

IMCD's further expansion plans target the Chinese market to support the growth of IMCD's distribution activities in Asia-Pacific.
