Evonik Expands Plant in Indonesia

September 27, 2013

INDONESIA:  Evonik has opened its newly expanded plant for the production of raw materials, additives and ingredients for the cosmetic and household care industries in Bekasi. With this investment, Evonik is increasing its capacity for surfactants and esters used in hair care, skin care and industrial applications.

“As a global supplier to multinational but also Indonesian companies in the personal and household care industries, meeting our customers’ needs is of essence to us,” noted Lauren Kjeldsen, business director Asia Pacific for Evonik’s Personal Care Business Line. “Expanding our manufacturing footprint in Asia marks another step to better serve our customers in the region. The additional capacity will allow us to shorten lead times and optimize the supply chain with regional inventory.”

The range of raw materials and additives provided by Evonik’s Indonesian plant includes emulsifiers, secondary surfactants, emollients, conditioners, thickeners, and pearlizing agents. In addition, an attached analytical and technical service lab offers personal and household care manufacturers continuous support with their formulations as well as updates and trainings on new additives, active ingredients and products.

Evonik’s plant in Bekasi has been recognized with the Zero Accident Award from Indonesia’s Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration, the Halal Certificate from the Indonesian Council of Ulama and is certified as per ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007.
