Bostik, the specialty adhesives business line of Arkema, has expanded its cementitious product manufacturing capacities at its Seremban plant in Malaysia.

This extended site manufactures cementitious construction products including wall finishing products. Production is based on the company’s polymer modified binder technology which remains a focus of its ongoing innovation, research and development activities.

This expansion, just two years after Bostik opened its second Malaysian manufacturing plant in Johor Bahru to serve the Southern Malaysia and Singapore markets, is “an important step in Bostik’s development plans in Malaysia,” according to the company.

“We are pleased and excited to continue Bostik’s global development and, with this capacity expansion, we are strengthening our operations in Malaysia,” says Jeffrey Merkt, senior vice president of Asia.  “This allows us to respond more quickly to changes in market demand and to continue to supply high quality products to the construction sector.”

The plant was officially inaugurated at a special ceremony last month.
