Huntsman Opens 12th FDC In São Paulo

Singapore-based Huntsman Textile Effects has opened its 12th Formulation and Distribution Center
(FDC) in São Paulo, Brazil. The new center will feature the latest technology and will focus on
manufacturing dyeing auxiliaries, and pretreatment and finishing products for customers in the
area. Huntsman reports that Brazil is one of the fastest-growing and increasingly important markets
for its textile chemicals.

“With the opening of our new low cost production facility for formulated chemicals in São
Paulo, we will considerably increase our competitiveness and flexibility in textile chemicals in
the growing Brazilian textile market,” said Rohit Aggarwal, vice president, Huntsman Textile
Effects for Apparel and Home Textiles. “Huntsman Textile Effects is committed to sustainability and
looks to develop more competitive locally-sourced formulated products for the local market.”

“We are delighted that our Textile Effects division is opening this FDC as it means they can
offer a truly bespoke end to end service for their customers across Brazil,” said Monte Edlund,
vice president, Advanced Materials Americas, speaking at an opening ceremony for the FDC in São
Paulo. “It will also result in greater integration between our two divisions, Advanced Materials
and Textile Effects within [the] Americas and it will ensure greater leverage of existing Huntsman
business infrastructure in Brazil.”
