Adds Mark Kwok, President of AkzoNobel China/North Asia: “Given emerging market trends and customer needs, we are fully aware of the importance of manufacturing and delivering locally. The Changzhou site plays a strategic role in supporting our business development in China. The new production lines will further our localization strategy to create more value for both ourselves and our customers with efficient and customized solutions.”
Opened in 2012, the Changzhou site supports the manufacture of both powder coatings and liquid coatings, including decorative paints, protective coatings and vehicle refinishes. The powder coatings facility was a later addition and started production in 2018. It covers virtually all industry applications and supports the entire East China region.
AkzoNobel, the global leader in powder coatings, supplies these coatings to more than 30,000 customers worldwide, covering market segments ranging from domestic appliances, architecture and automotive to furniture, IT and general industrial applications.
