VAE Celanese Emulsions Dedicates Expanded VAE Plant in China
The Emulsion Polymers business of Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company, formally dedicated its expanded vinyl acetate/ethylene (VAE) unit in Nanjing, China.
Nanjing, PR China– The expansion, which doubles the original capacity of the VAE unit, came online in the second quarter. “This VAE unit expansion is a reflection of Celanese’s commitment to the further development of vinyl-based emulsion solutions,” said Phillip McDivitt, General Manager.
“Celanese has shown a strong commitment to China and Asia with its continued investments here in Nanjing and across the region. There are now eight units here at the Celanese Nanjing Chemical Complex and more are planned at this facility, which is already Celanese’s largest complex in the world,” said Josh Cheng, President of Celanese China. In addition to the manufacturing investments, the company celebrates the opening of the Celanese Shanghai Commercial and Technology Center which opened earlier this year. "The CSCT houses hundreds of employees to service our customers in China and throughout Asia both on a business and technical level,” Cheng said.
