Guangdong Sanshui -- Rohm and Haas held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new manufacturing facility within the Foshan Sanshui Industrial Park in Guangdong.

Nearly 100 guests attended the ceremony, including officials from the Foshan Municipal Government, Foshan Sanshui Industrial Park, and senior executives and employees of Rohm and Haas.

"This groundbreaking ceremony once again demonstrates our ongoing commitment to invest in China and to expand our presence in the Asia-Pacific market overall," said Sam Shoemaker, Vice President of Rohm and Haas and Director of the Asia-Pacific Region for the company.

Tom Grehl, Vice President of Rohm and Haas, spoke highly of the support and work of the local government. "We are able to celebrate the development of our Sanshui project in such a short period of time thanks to the favorable investment environment and the efficient and comprehensive services provided by the Foshan Government, along with the Management Committee of the Foshan Sanshui Industrial Park." He added, "This specialty materials manufacturing complex will enable Rohm and Haas to better understand and develop the markets of South China and nearby areas. It also will enhance our ability to meet the increasing demand of our customers for high-quality products and efficient technical services."

The new manufacturing complex encompasses 100,000 square meters of land and an initial investment of US$15 million. The first phase of this specialty materials site will be completed in mid-2006, and will make products for use in paints and coatings. When fully completed, the Sanshui site will become the manufacturing base for the company’s chemical production operations in Guangdong province, providing excellent products and services for a variety of market sectors, including construction, printing, papermaking, packaging, personal care, water treatment, food and medicine, and more.
