According to BMS, with these projects, the company will increase its downstream presence considerably in what has become its second largest market worldwide. BMS will then have a network covering the main geographical areas of the country. The company currently has a colour competence and development centre and a PU systems house in Guangzhou and a further PU systems house in Nanjing. BMS says more than 40 % of its polyurethanes business in China is currently achieved through supplying PU systems to the construction, appliance and automotive sectors, in particular. The three new PU systems houses are to be built in Shanghai, Qingdao and Chongqing. The company intends to build the new colour compounding and design centre in Chongqing, while the sheet facility is planned in Guangzhou.
