Crompton is the majority shareholder in the joint venture, Nanjing Crompton Shuguang Organosilicon Specialties Co., Ltd., which will produce a wide range of products for the growing organofunctional silanes market in China and for export. Establishment of a manufacturing facility in the PRC is part of Crompton’s commitment to a cost leadership position and a global supply network to support customers.

Calarco, Crompton chairman, president and chief executive officer. “”We are confident that the strong manufacturing position of our partner in China, coupled with our proprietary silane technology, will enable us to accelerate the growth of silanes in the PRC and throughout the Asia Pacific Region.””
