"Asia is fast growing and this new capacity will allow us to effectively participate in this rapidly expanding market. We will improve our level of service through these dedicated resources within the region. The new plant in Thailand will provide us with an industrial footprint for HDI and derivatives: in addition the markets served by Pont-de-Claix in France and Freeport in the USA”, says Sutin Chamulitrat, Vice President, Marketing & Sales.
