CARONNO PERTUSELLA (VARESE, ITALY¬¬¬) – JANUARY FEBRUARY 10, 2014. Driven by its continuous business success and commitment to sustainable growth, SAPICI S.p.A. disclosed today its new multi-million Euro investment. The investment is aimed at both expanding in San Cipriano Po (IT) the aliphatic derivatives product range that the company manufactures in Italy and commercialises at a global level through direct sales and its capillary network of distributors, and at further developing the production capacity of the Zhuhai (PRC) Facility improving its ability to provide its fast-growing customer base in China and the Asia region with a wider portfolio of locally manufactured, specialty and tailor-made products and services.
“We are rapidly progressing with the implementation of our company’s new multi-million Euro investment decision in Italy and China. We are going to extend our aliphatics production output and our ability to provide our clients with new, customised and competitive specialty chemicals products and services worldwide,” commented Cristian Furiosi, SAPICI General Manager.
“This new significant investment in the production of isocyanic prepolymers and hardeners for coating and adhesives will allow our large and technologically advanced manufacturing plants in San Cipriano Po (Italy, inaugurated in 2004) and Zhuhai (China, 2006) to produce a wider range of specialty and customised products that we will use to serve our clients globally and – specifically from Zhuhai – the Asia regional market.
SAPICI has developed extensive in-house engineering know-how that allows it to design and run its large manufacturing plants while maintaining the necessary flexibility in terms of production range and volumes. At the completion of the on-going works, the company’s plant in San Cipriano Po will be able to synthetize 100% solid content products as well as to prepare customised dilutions and derivatives for every sector and coating needs, including wood, coil, automotive, and others. By enlarging our isocyanic prepolymers and hardeners manufacturing capabilities in Zhuhai we are going to further enhance our customised offering and level of service to our clients in the region; SAPICI’s specialty products offering in Cina and Asia is currently sourced also from Italy, and we have decided to further improve our local ability to directly support our clients’ growth, differentiation and success,” Furiosi elaborated.
This new large investment in Italy and China will expand SAPICI’s aliphatics product range and the company’s ability to develop, manufacture and commercialize low free-monomer isocyanate prepolymers for special applications. SAPICI plans to significantly increase its participation in international projects for the development of innovative polyurethane-based solutions in various applications and industries, including aerospace.
The company anticipates that its customers will be able to benefit from the enhanced capabilities and flexibility made available by SAPICI’s investment ¬before the end of 2014.
