Protective coatings supplier Hempel has opened a new manufacturing facility in Guangzhou, China.
Hempel’s new factory will help the company meet the increasing demand for coatings in the region. The factory also includes a new research and development centre, which is the third largest facility of its type within the Hempel Group.
With 56,000 square-metres of space, Hempel’s newest and largest factory, located in Guangzhou, China, is expected to produce more than 42 million litres of coatings per year, with a maximum production capacity of 55 million litres. The Guangzhou factory replaces Hempel’s oldest Chinese factory in Shekou, 137 kilometres away. The company claims employees have now moved to the new location.
“This production facility showcases the most advanced technologies in coatings manufacturing,” says Hempel CEO Pierre-Yves Jullien who officially opened the new factory.
As part of Hempel’s environmental commitment, the factory uses the latest technology to recover materials and reduce the plant’s carbon footprint.
This includes an automatic batching system to reduce dust emissions and minimise the manual handling of powders and a recovery system to recycle solvents for future use. In addition to an air incineration unit, an active carbon filtration system, sealed surfaces and collection systems, the factory produces no industrial wastewater.
Located in the Yonghe Zone of the Guangzhou Economic and Technology Development District about 100 kilometres north of Hong Kong, Hempel’s Guangzhou factory was completed in 14 months at a cost of approximately EUR22.5 million.
