Lansol Fluorchemicals launched the production of NOCOLOK in China. The plant in Quzhou (Zhejiang province) was officially opened this June less than a year after the cornerstone ceremony. Operations will start as planned in the beginning of July. Lansol is a joint venture between Solvay and the Chinese chemical company Sinochem Lantian. Besides Germany and Korea, Quzhou is Solvay’s third production site for NOCOLOK brazing flux.
The new plant will help Solvay to serve the rapidly growing automotive market and the segment around stationary air-conditioning systems in China. “It is an important building block in our global growth strategy”, Dr Bernd Wilkes, president of the Global Business Unit (GBU) Special Chemicals at Solvay, said at the official opening ceremony. Around 100 representatives from politics, business and administration came to the ceremony at the Sinochem Lansol plant, as well as customers and employees of Solvay, Lansol and Sinochem Lantian.
