Clariant Catalysts opens new engineering services office in Indonesia

First Singapore and Tokyo, now Jakarta. Clariant’s Catalysts business unit opens its third location for Engineering Services in Asia-Pacific, bringing the global total to 16 offices. The expansion is aimed at enhancing regional support, particularly in the southern APAC countries, with a focus on catalysts for ethylene and styrene and syngas applications, as well as distillate upgrading, hydrogenation, and oxidation.

Inaugurated in September, the new office is based at Clariant’s site in Tangerang, near Jakarta, Indonesia. The catalyst specialists appointed for the office will work closely with regional colleagues. Clariant already operates a joint-venture catalyst production facility near Jakarta, in Cikampek.

Stefan Heuser, Senior Vice President & General Manager Business Unit Catalysts at Clariant, commented on the development, stating, “APAC is a vast region with a wide distribution of customers having diverse requirements and applications. The investment brings value to our customers’ businesses, as it allows us to work more closely on their challenges, and respond more quickly with optimal solutions.”
