Masterbatch facility gets underway in Poland

18 Mar 2013


Chemical producer Clariant is to construct a CHF11.3m facility in the Łódź Special Economic Zone in central Poland.  Clariant will construct a new production site, laboratory, warehouse, and offices at the location. Covering an area of approximately 6,800 square meters, the facility will enable Clariant to double the production capacity for masterbatches in Poland.

‘You cannot underestimate the meaning of this investment for the entire company. The market for masterbatches, though demanding, develops dynamically and a modern facility such as this in Konstantynów Łódzki, will allow us to develop new solutions tailored to the specific needs of customers effectively,’ comments Hans Bohnen, Head of Clariant Business Unit Masterbatches.

The company has been in Poland for 22 years.

‘Clariant Polska’s success is built on ambitious and highly qualified employees. As a team we have shown how we can positively influence the development of the entire company. Our further growth is also a result of an exemplary cooperation with the local communities and representatives of Łódź Special Economic Zone,’ claims Ralph Rutte, President of Clariant Polska.

‘Central Europe is a very promising market and Poland, as a large and dynamically growing country in the region is the natural place for further investments. We are deeply convinced that our engagement in building a new facility in Konstantynów will prove to be beneficial for both Clariant and the Łódź region,’ believes Patrick Jany, CFO Clariant International AG.
