Jan 9 2017
Hexion Inc. informed their plans to build a new European technology center in Kamp-Lintfort, Germany. The new facility will consolidate activities from several research and development facilities located in nearby Duisburg.
The facility will be located at the Dieprahm Technology Park and includes an existing 1,400 square meter (15,000 square feet) building housing office and warehouse space, adjacent to which will be built a 1,600 square meter (17,200 square feet) new laboratory facility.
The new facility will house research and development activities including the Transportation Research and Application Center (TRAC), which develops technology solutions to enable growth of composites for the automotive industry. The Kamp-Lintfort facility will also increase Hexion’s process technology research and improve formulation development capabilities for coatings, civil engineering, aerospace composites and electrical casting applications. This new facility will complement Hexion’s high-tech lab dedicated to wind energy applications in Esslingen Germany, which is housed within a high-capacity specialty epoxy resin blending facility.
