Bodo Möller Chemie took over the Sadat City production site, together with the Alexandria and Cairo labs and sales offices, from the Huntsman Corporation in 2015, establishing their own Polymer System House. The new production stage will take over the manufacturing of solvent-based products so the existing plant can concentrate on manufacturing aqueous systems.

“We are pleased that demand from Egypt and the surrounding countries for the services of Polymer System House has increased so immensely that an expansion of production capacity has become necessary,” says Yehia Desouky, Managing Director of Bodo Möller Chemie Egypt.

“We are proud to be not only a leading sales and distribution partner of leading manufacturers, but also to be able to supply the Middle East market with its own products. Added to this is the wide-ranging knowledge that we can offer for the further processing of the products,&rdquo explains Frank Haug, CEO of the globally active Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
