Wacker opens new headquarters and technical center in the U.S.



By Tim Wright



Published October 22, 2009
Wacker Chemie AG has inaugurated its new headquarters and technical center in Allentown, PA/USA. Equipped with lab facilities, the technical center will develop and test polymer products chiefly for applications in the construction, adhesive, engineered fabrics and architectural coating industries. Through its new addition, the Munich-based chemical company is promoting international quality standards and the exchange of expertise with regional customers and partners. The technical center is located at Wacker Polymers' new U.S. headquarters, which also opened recently. Alongside research and applications labs, the new headquarters is housed in 6,200 square meters of space and is home to sales, marketing, customer-service and administrative functions. The move to Allentown is part of Wacker’s integration of its two former joint ventures—Air Products Polymers and Wacker Polymer Systems—into the group. Wacker acquired full ownership of these two companies last year.
