Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands -- Akzo Nobel Resins' new production facility for coating resins in Suzhou, China is now operational. The Coating Resins production facility in Suzhou aims at growth in China and the rest of the Asian region.

According to Rob Harmsen, General Manager Coating Resins: "Akzo Nobel Resins already has a successful track record with Coating Resins joint ventures in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. Local production in China is an important and logical next step for this high growth business. We are one of the first international players operating from a local production facility, and we expect this to be highly beneficial in establishing a strong and leading position in the market. We are able to provide customers with better service, especially as several key customers are rapidly expanding their local production base in China and are looking for local supply of high quality raw materials."

The Coating Resins plant is located in Suzhou New District near Shanghai. It produces alkyds, polyesters, aminos and acrylic resins for the coatings industry.
