Lanxess Opens New EUR 200 Million Plant on Jurong Island; to Cut 1,000 Jobs in Germany, and Close Down Rubber Plant by the End of Year 2015

Lanxess remains confident about its growth prospects, especially in Asia, despite the tough market conditions plaguing the rubber industry. The company has forged ahead with its expansion strategy in the region. The group opened its new EUR 200 million plant on Jurong Island - one of its large single investments. The neodymium butadiene rubber facility, which produces synthetic rubber that can increase fuel efficiency and performance in tyres, is the company's first such plant in Asia. The new plant, which has a production capacity of 140,000 tonnes a year, will serve global markets, with an emphasis on meeting the growing demand in Asia. The plant has generated about 100 highly skilled jobs here, largely filled by locals. The company has been undergoing an aggressive restructuring exercise amid the industry downturn. The company will cut 1,000 jobs in Germany, and close down a rubber plant there by the end of year 2015.

Lanxess Is Looking For A Potential Partner

Lanxess AG (XTRA:LXS) is looking for a potential partner to join a new entity that will also consist of its tyre & specialty rubbers (TSR) and high performance elastomers units, which will be carved out from the business group, a senior company executive said on August 27, 2015. Lanxess will place its tyre & speciality rubbers and high performance elastomers business units - comprising 20 production facilities and administration staffed by 3,700 employees - into the new entity. "We are looking for a new partner and this process is moving at this point in the right direction," Jorge Noguiera, the head of the Lanxess' TSR business unit, told ICIS. It was not immediately clear as to whether the company is looking for a new joint venture partner, or is planning to make an acquisition as part of its plans. "A partner will give us more flexibility, the point is to find a partner to make it [the new entity] potentially stronger from a raw materials standpoint," Noguiera said. "The idea is that carving out the two units will give us the flexibility to move into a potential partnership much faster than just waiting," he added. Noguiera said the company has no fixed timeline to announce a partner or the new entity.
