AkzoNobel plans to phase out chemicals production at Deventer

15 October 2013

AkzoNobel has announced plans to phase out the production of organic peroxides at its site in Deventer, The Netherlands by the end of 2016. Under the plans, the production activities currently carried out in Deventer will be moved to other existing production facilities in Europe, North America and China over the next three years.

The intention to stop production in Deventer will impact approximately 215 employees at the site. While AkzoNobel intends to phase out the production of chemicals at Deventer, the site’s regional R&D and state-of-the-art technology centre will remain in full operation, employing approximately 235 personnel.

The production facility in Deventer is one of 11 organic peroxide manufacturing plants operated globally by AkzoNobel. Organic peroxides are part of the company’s functional chemicals portfolio.
