“The partnership has proven highly effective since we started in 2018 in Thailand. We’re excited to strengthen our presence and thriving business in Southeast Asia, and bring our highly advanced and specialty solutions to the region with the expanded partnership with Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients in Indonesia. We have seen early successes during the transition period in Indonesia, and are confident that Jebsen & Jessen’s knowledge and relationships within the region and deep level of technical expertise in the industry will bring continued success and growth” said Arie Kooij, Global Leader Market Center Tin Intermediates & PVC-A at SONGWON.

To ensure that the local teams are able to deliver the best service and expertise, SONGWON and JJING have collaborated for technical training, which has continued in the form of bi-weekly teleconference calls during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

With the success of the partnership, both companies are exploring plans for an expanded product range that includes performance additives and antioxidants beyond PVC. The partnership is expected to bring substantial revenue growth for both companies, with continued growth in Thailand and a positive start for sustainable business growth in Indonesia.
