Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, has announced plans to build a new masterbatches plant in Sydney.

The new plant will mainly serve the Australian market with a full range of color and additive masterbatches, technically innovative solutions and services to meet the growing local needs.

Construction on the plant is currently underway, with plans of commissioning in the fourth quarter 2014.

Working closely with Clariant’s New Zealand Albany site, the Australian plant will produce a full range of color and additive masterbatches tailored to local customer requirements, along with color matching and quality control capabilities.

“Asia Pacific region is one of Clariant’s focal areas for future development. The new Australian masterbatches plant will support our Masterbatches business to grow and to increase its customer service focus in the region,” said Mathias Lütgendorf, Member of the Executive Committee.

“Building a local masterbatches production plant is a key part of providing fast and reliable service to our Australian customer base, as well as to global and local brand owners,” said Heiner Mehrtens, Head of RBL Masterbatches for Clariant Asia Pacific.

Clariant is based at Muttenz near Basel in Switzerland and has more than 18,000 employees.
