Jhagadia, India -- Rhein Chemie Rheinau GmbH has opened its new production facility at the Jhagadia site in the Indian state of Gujarat, successfully completing the transfer of production from Madurai in southern India.
Construction took just under a year, the Lanxess subsidiary said in a 10 Jan news release. The company said the main factors in the decision to relocate were the â€œexcellent infrastructure and good opportunities for future expansion offered by the large Lanxess production site at Jhagadia and its proximity to key customers.â€
At the facility, Rhein Chemie produces its Rhenogran (predispersed polymer-bound additives) and Rhenodiv (tyre release agents) product lines for the rubber processing industry.
â€œOur state-of-the-art production plants will help us to optimally serve the fast-growing Indian market. We offer our customers in India a broad range of products at a consistently high level of quality,â€ said Dr. Anno Borkowsky, CEO and president of Rhein Chemie.
Rhein Chemie said it has continuously strengthened its presence on the Indian subcontinent in recent years, using local production and a highly qualified sales and consulting team to establish itself as a partner to the Indian rubber industry.
