DSM Desotech to Build Production Plant in China
The plant will be the fourth manufacturing facility for DSM Desotech, which also operates production sites in Stanley, NC; Hoek van Holland, The Netherlands; and Tsukuba, Japan. The Tsukuba site is part of Japan Fine Coatings Co. Ltd., a joint venture of DSM and JSR.
DSM said the expansion in China is a response to growth in the country's fiber-optic and cable market. The company in 1999 opened its first local sales office in Shanghai, then opened a technical service center and distribution center in 2003.
