Lanxess: Jhagadia Site Up and Running

Filed under: General, Rubber Chemicals — Notch @ 12:37 pm

In early March, LANXESS announced that it had completed the first phase of construction of its new site in Jhagadia, Gujarat state, India. The production of the rubber chemicals plant was started up, as planned, after being relocated from Thane, Maharashtra state.

The plant features the latest technology and was constructed over a period of less than two years. It will supply the global rubber and mineral oil additive market as well as the rapidly growing Indian tire and rubber industry with high-quality antioxidants belonging to LANXESS’ Vulkanox® brand.

“The Jhagadia site will become LANXESS’ largest production site in India and highlights our long-term commitment to the growing domestic market as well as our Group’s BRIC strategy,” said Rainier van Roessel, member of the Board of Management of LANXESS AG. “With the plant, LANXESS stands out as the only Western company to be manufacturing rubber chemicals in India.”
