Global chemical company Huntsman Corporation (The Woodlands, Texas) recently announced plans to build a new polyurethanes systems house in Dubai. The new facility, to be located in the Jebel Ali Free Trade Zone, will aim to strengthen the company’s downstream presence in the Middle East.

Huntsman Expansion

According to Huntsman, the expansion will increase the company’s production capacity in the region, adding a “new dimension” to its polyester polyol capabilities. The Dubai systems house will work in conjunction with Huntsman’s two other systems houses in the Middle East—one is located in Turkey, the other in Saudi Arabia.

Global chemical company Huntsman Corporation announced plans at the end of May to build a new polyurethanes systems house in Dubai. The new facility, to be located in the Jebel Ali Free Trade Zone, will strengthen the company’s downstream presence in the Middle East.

“This is a bold and timely investment, which will serve as a strategic platform to expand our business in the Middle East and North Africa and build our market leading position,” said Tony Hankins, president of Huntsman’s polyurethanes division. “It represents the next step in our plan to strengthen our downstream network. We now have 30 facilities worldwide, which provide innovative solutions in close proximity to our customers.”

Steen Weien Hansen, regional vice president of polyurethanes, added that the construction of the new facility would allow the company to supply “traditional and high-end rigid polyurethane formulations from a local source.

“It will also enable us to leverage our development and production know-how in polyester polyol and polyol blends for the fast-growing flexible foam and footwear markets, as well as pre-polymers for adhesives, coatings and elastomers applications.”
