Synthomer increases production capacity in Saudi Arabia

Trends and Events

Synthomer Middle East is to expand its production plant for acrylic and vinyl acetate dispersions in Dammam, Saudi-Arabia, with the aim of increasing the annual plant capacity to over 100,000 tonnes. With this expansion, the company intends to strengthen its position as a supplier of binding agents for coatings, construction chemicals, adhesives, textiles and floor coverings. Completion of the expansion is planned for mid-2014.

“The market in the Middle East has continued to develop strongly in recent years, and this latest expansion to our Dammam facility is essential to ensure that we keep pace with the growing demands from our construction and coating customers in the region as well as providing us with the opportunity to introduce further cutting-edge technologies and develop our business in a broader range of market segments,” said Synthomer Middle East’s Managing Director, Shaz Rashid.

Synthomer Middle East is a joint-venture between a subsidiary of Synthomer plc (United Kingdom) and Dhahran Chemical Industries and Marketing Company.
