Huntsman breaks ground on new centre

18 April 2012

Huntsman Corporation held a groundbreaking ceremony for its Asia Pacific Technology Center (ATC) in Shanghai’s Minhang Economic and Technological Development Zone. The US$40M facility is designed to support the Asia Pacific region’s rapidly growing demand for world-class technology and innovation and will be operational by mid-2013.

"The centre will focus on supporting Asia’s fast-growing industries, including developing cutting-edge energy-saving material solutions for strategic emerging industries as outlined in China’s 12th Five-Year Plan,” said Anthony P Hankins, Huntsman’s CEO Asia Pacific.

The new ATC will form an integrated technology and innovation campus together with the existing technology centre that opened in 2008.
