Reichhold launched its new manufacturing facility in Tianjin in northern China in December 2011. With 20 manufacturing sites and five technology centers across the globe, Reichhold has further strengthened its presence in the global market with its entry into this large and rapidly growing market.

The facility is set up with a planned annual production capacity of 38,000 metric tons but with a potential expansion to 60,000 metric tons. The plant will produce a full Reichhold composites product line, including unsaturated polyester resins, vinyl ester resins, gelcoats and bonding pastes. The market applications will cover wind power, high performance anti-corrosion, marine, high speed train, industrial construction, electronics and electrical industry.

"The market in China is very important to Reichhold. It is the largest composites market in the world and is growing rapidly," said John Gaither, chairman, president and CEO, Reichhold Industries, Inc. "Many of our global customers have a Chinese presence and need from Reichhold the same products available in China as elsewhere in the world. China is deeply committed to wind energy and, as the leading supplier of polyester resins for wind mill blades, Reichhold needs to be able to supply locally our innovative resins."
