SI Group, a manufacturer of additives, process solutions, active pharmaceutical ingredients, and chemical intermediates, will present its new advancements in plastic additives technologies and its rubber and chemical intermediate solutions at Chinaplas 2021 (Hall 15, Stall D39). The event will be held on 13 – 16 April 2021 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center in Shenzhen, China.
According to SI Group, since it combined with Addivant in late 2018, the company has transformed to captivate customers in the plastics industry through enhancing its security of supply and developing innovations that meet changing market needs. During the event, SI Group will be hosting an on-site press event to announce the company’s recent investments to better serve the Chinese market and the latest news on SI Group’s offerings for the plastics industry. In addition, a virtual press event will be held for international media who are unable to attend Chinaplas 2021 due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
SI Group has a strong presence in Asia Pacific and has growth plans to deliver new and innovative performance additives to the region. “The changing demands in the polyolefins industry require increased innovation and deeper partnerships. We continue to invest in the region and develop leading solutions that meet our customers’ needs with the global footprint to support them,” stated Chuck Reardon, VP Plastics Solutions. Due to the size of the plastics and rubber market in Asia Pacific, it is a strategic growth region for the company. “SI Group has developed a strong regional team in Asia Pacific, particularly in China. Our dedicated team serves our customers and partners in this growing region and looks forward to participating in Chinaplas 2021 to engage with customers and the industry,” said David Lu, SI Group’s VP & Managing Director – Asia Pacific.
