Araçariguama/Brazil – Actega do Brazil, a company of the specialty chemicals group Altana, has recently inaugurated a new integrated site in the city of Araçariguama in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, in which around 2.2 million dollars have been invested. In a first step, the specialist for packaging solutions is merging the administration, production and R&D activities from two old Brazilian sites in Guarulhos and Barueri into the new site in Araçariguama.

"South America is a very high-growth region for the packaging sector. With our investment in the new Brazilian site in the heart of the South American continent, we want to further promote and expand Actega's development for the benefit of our employees and customers", says Actega Division President Thorsten Kröller.

In a further step, the firm’s third Brazilian location in Santana de Parnaíba will also be transferred to the new integrated location by 2021. This move will help the firm to manage business in the South American market from a central location in the future in an even more targeted and customer-focused manner.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

In the medium term, the new location will thus combine the technology and application know-how of 180 employees from 21 departments on a total area of 12,000 square meters. A new state of the art 500 square meter research laboratory is also integrated, so that research, development and production can go hand in hand on site.

With the investment in the new integrated site, Actega intends to further establish itself as a technology pioneer in the South American market. To this end, the new location has explicitly invested in new high-performance dispersion units for printing ink production and corresponding equipment for the production of water-based and UV coatings.
