Eastman recently opened its new India technology center in Thane, Mumbai, Maharashtra state, to provide technology support and faster regional service for its coatings, inks, specialty fluids, and energy businesses. The center will deliver local technical support and service to customers in the South Asia Pacific region, where Eastman has a large customer base.

Located in Thane, Mumbai, the center has more than 1,500 square meters of laboratory space with the personnel and advanced tools to provide direct technical support to downstream manufacturers and customers. It houses experienced chemists, engineers, and technical service scientists and is equipped with analytical, formulation, application, and physical testing equipment. By closely partnering with customers, the development cycle for new innovations will be significantly shortened from initial concept to final commercialization.

The center will provide support for additional Eastman businesses beginning later this year. The new location will collaborate with Eastman’s regional and corporate technology centers to provide technical expertise to the Indian market today and the broader South Asia Pacific market in the near future.
