RBP Chemical Technology Opens Facility in India
MILWAUKEE, Wis.—RBP Chemical Technology, a supplier of process chemicals to the worldwide graphic arts and printed circuit industries, has announced the opening of a production facility in suburban Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India. The fully operational chemical blending facility will be under complete RBP Chemical Technology control, and initially will blend proprietary chemicals to support customers in the printed circuit fabrication industry. A second production stage is expected to provide graphic arts chemicals to the Indian subcontinent and nearby markets. Production is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2007, and the company intends to supply the entire RBP product range from the new facility.
In announcing the new facility, RBP Chemical Technology President Mark Kannenberg commented, “Our new, wholly owned blending plant to support the Indian market further demonstrates the commitment of RBP Chemical Technology to the worldwide printed circuit and graphic arts markets, and we look forward to supporting our existing customers as they expand their manufacturing operations on the Indian subcontinent. RBP is relocating an experienced chemical technician to the new facility to ensure that the quality for which we are known will be available from this new plant the day it comes on line.”
