Bostik, a subsidiary of Arkema, has expanded its capacity for manufacturing cementitious products in Malaysia. Its extended plant, situated in Seremban, uses Bostik’s polymer modified binder (PMB) technology to manufacture specialist adhesives for the construction industry, and the expansion was required owing to increased demand for Bostik’s adhesives by the Malaysian construction industry.
The products manufactured in the expanded facility include tile grouts, tile adhesives, floor levelling compounds and wall finishing coatings. The expansion follows in the wake of the opening of Bostik’s Johor Baru manufacturing plant in Malaysia two years ago. This facility serves the Singaporean and Southern Malaysian markets while the Seremban plant will supply the Central Malaysian, Northern Malaysian and Sabar regions.
