Scott Bader is to install a further 10,000 metric tons of unsaturated polyester resin (UPR) capacity at its manufacturing facility in the Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai, planned to come on line in Quarter two next year.

This new investment – which follows hard on the heels of their last plant upgrade in September 2004 – will bring Scott Bader’s capacity at the Dubai plant to 40,000 metric tons, making it the largest polyester manufacturing plant in the Middle East.

Scott Bader supplies the full range of Crystic iso and orthophthalic UPR resins, vinyl esters and gelcoats to markets in the Middle East, North Africa, Far East and the Indian subcontinent from it’s Jebel Ali unit.

Set against a background of rising oil revenues and booming construction projects in the Middle East, Philip Bruce the Scott Bader Group Managing Director said “The investment should give our key customers in this important region a high level of confidence that we are committed to growing with them and are able to meet their demand for our Crystic® resin products both now and in the future.”
