Chromaflo Technologies to build facility in Kuala Lumpur


Chromaflo Technologies, a leading independent global supplier of colorant systems, chemical and pigment dispersions, is building a new pigment dispersion manufacturing facility in Kuala Lumpur (KL), Malaysia.

The facility includes a single-story warehouse space with a two-story office facility.

As in China, South Africa and India, Chromaflo will be designing and constructing a world-class manufacturing, warehousing, technical laboratory and office facility that is in line with Chromaflo branding common to all the existing Asia Pacific facilities.

The 70,000-square-foot factory and warehouse and 8000-square-foot office will support customers in the entire ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) region and is expected to be complete in January of 2019.

The new facility will be part of its new legal entity ‘Chromaflo Technologies (M) SDN. BHD'.

This will be the regional head office for ASEAN with a full range of support functions for its ASEAN customers.

The facility will leverage the manufacturing of a full range of water-based colorants, including those based on Chromaflo’s low VOC technology, solvent-based colorants and 100% solids colorants.

These technologies will support a broad range of end segments, such as architectural coatings, industrial and high performance coatings, wood finishes, concrete protection, ink, latex, adhesives, caulks and sealants, gel coats and various thermoset plastics applications.

“Moving to a new facility was initiated by our continued growth and support,” said Scott Becker, President and CEO of Chromaflo.

“The exciting action will allow Chromaflo to provide local products and support to the customers in ASEAN area - one of APAC’s largest sales and growth regions.

"The new facility will, without a doubt, demonstrate Chromaflo’s presence and commitment across the Asia Pacific region while also significantly reducing lead times relative to supply from our Australia and China facilities.”

The target timeline is to produce trial batches in early January 2019 with full production soon thereafter.
