Huntsman Opens Facilities In Turkey

Switzerland-based Huntsman Materials and Effects Europe has opened a 5,000-square-meter multipurpose Tuzla site in Istanbul, Turkey, to house a Textile Effects Formulation and Distribution Center, and a Technical Center to serve the European textile market; and an Advanced Materials production plant.

According to Huntsman, both businesses have operated in Turkey since the 1960s through various channels. The new Textile Effects facilities are expected to bolster the business’s Turkish operations as well as its global network. The Advanced Materials plant replaces an older facility and features environmental, health and safety improvements as well as improved service to customers.

“The opening of the Materials and Effects plant in Tuzla represents a further milestone in the history of the Materials and Effects division. Combining production and lab facilities into one new site will further leverage synergies,” said Paul Hulme, president, Materials and Effects. “This is an exciting and strategically beneficial step towards an even stronger presence for Huntsman in Turkey.”
