Songwon starts operation of new OPS factory in Abu Dhabi


Songwon Industrial Co Ltd has started operation of its new state-of-the-art joint venture (jv) manufacturing plant in Abu Dhabi.

The facility is located in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), owned and managed by Abu Dhabi Ports – the master developer, operator and manager of ports in the Emirate. The new plant is dedicated to manufacturing One Pack Systems (OPS) − multicomponent, tailor made blends of additives in a pelletised form and then packaged in a clean, dust free environment, ready for shipping. With an initial capacity of 7,000 MT per annum, the manufacturing facility was specifically designed to allow for future expansion to meet the increasing demand for OPS products in the Middle East region and beyond, which Maurizio Butti, Chief Operating Officer, Songwon Industrial says is one of the fastest growing markets for polyolefins and already a major consumer of OPS.

The new facility is part of Polysys Additive Technologies Middle East (PAT ME), the company formed by the jv between Polysys Industries, Pan Gulf Holding and Songwon Industrial Group. Songwon has grown to become the second largest polymer stabiliser supplier in the world and its OPS products are readily available under the Songnox® OPS brand. With an unequaled portfolio of antioxidants and UV stabilizers in a full range of physical forms, it is fully backward integrated into key raw materials, thus providing the highest levels of quality consistency and security of supply to its customers.

The new Abu Dhabi facility is the latest addition to the company’s global OPS manufacturing capability and shares identical production technology as the two other plants located in Greiz, Germany and Houston, US.
