Brenntag Thailand announces the official inauguration and opening of its recently extended and renovated Service and Application Center (SAC) as well as a new Mixing and Blending facility all located at its existing Thailand Operations Complex (TOC) in the outskirt of Bangkok, Thailand.
The new, state-of-the-art, 3-story SAC includes existing facilities and some 10 laboratories handling Application & Development work for, among others, Food & Beverage, Agro, Biotech, Water Treatment, Home & Personal Care, ACES, Textiles, etc. It also encompasses quality control for Refrigeration & Ammonia as well as the newly finished Mixing & Blending plant, a large Meeting & Training facility plus all the necessary office space for related lab staff including flexible workstations for Brenntag’s other Thai and regional employees, customers and suppliers. It is truly an Operations Complex.
Flemming Soederquist, Managing Director of Brenntag Thailand: “This extension and renovation of our Application Development facility and new Mixing & Blending plant clearly demonstrates that Brenntag is committed to all its Corporate Values and value proposition of distributing quality products and services for all stakeholders and, simultaneously, strengthening personal and environmental safety.” Flemming continues: “Such local application development and Mixing & Blending services are an integral part of the way in which we’ve been the leading distributor of chemicals & specialty products here in Thailand for more than 130 years now, which we all at Brenntag Thailand are keen to expand.”
Standing at more than 1,000 square meters, the extended SAC is conveniently connected to the existing SAC via an internal walkway on the 3rd floor, which is fully dedicated to the Food & Beverage Application Center where the Technical Team, for example, can do full preparation and processing for Bakery, Beverage, Confectionary, Dairy and Meat Applications. The 2nd floor is occupied by a large, fully equipped Conference Room plus laboratories for Bio Industry, Water Treatment, Agro and General Use. Offices are conveniently located on the 1st floor facing the main entrance with the Analytical & QC Laboratory including Special Reagents Room at the back with easy reach under a canopy to the Mixing & Blending Plant.
Thailand is a strategic market for Brenntag in the APAC region. It has set highest standards for Operational Excellence and considers quality as vital for all of its customers and supplier partners.
The ribbon-cutting was attended by Flemming Soederquist together with Management from Brenntag Thailand as well as the APAC Region. About 100 people from Brenntag Thailand joined in the celebrations. After the Thai Buddhist rite and ribbon-cutting all participants did a guided tour of the new facilities.
