CEO Hans Wijers has officially opened a  Akzo Nobel powder coatings facility at Langfang in China, marking the fourth powder facility which the coatings giant oeprates in the country.

The new site is located between Beijing and Tianjin. Akzo built the new factory to replace a former plant in Beijing.

According to company officials, it not only consolidates Akzo Nobel’s position as the world’s largest manufacturer of powder coatings, but also ensure that the  business’ growth momentum is maintained in what is the fastest-growing global  market for the product.
 
Built on a 22,000  square meter site which includes scope for further expansion, the Langfang facility is being inaugurated just a few months after the company’s powder coatings business expanded its  operations in south China with the opening of a second factory at Baoan in Guangdong  Province.
 
“Akzo Nobel’s continuing investment in its powder coatings activities in China underlines the  country’s importance as one of the company’s major manufacturing locations,” said Wijers.  “Our strategy of serving the needs of our customers wherever they operate is crucial to our  success and the four powder coatings sites we now have in China are ideally positioned from  north to south to supply all sectors and respond to general market growth.”
 
Akzo Nobel also has powder coatings  production sites in Suzhou and Ningbo.
