Lohmann Asia Pacific is growing: New site in Thailand

30.08.16

With a long history stretching back over 160 years, Lohmann is one of the pioneering forces in adhesive tape technology. The Group now offers the most advanced adhesive solutions to all corners of the world. The Adhesive Tape Group is headquartered in Neuwied, Germany. With approx.1700 employees worldwide, state-of-the-art coating plants in Europe, Asia and America, 29 subsidiaries and exclusive sales partners in over 50 countries, Lohmann solutions are in high global demand across numerous areas of industry. With its Business Unit Asia Pacific Lohmann is successfully working in many Asian countries and cities, e.g. China, India, Korea, Japan, Singapore – in some of them for a very long time. Since the middle of this year the “Bonding Engineers” also have a new site in Bangkok, Thailand.

“The reason for setting up Lohmann Thailand was the desire to increase Lohmann’s presence in the growing region – South East Asia (ASEAN). To serve the customers optimally, it was decided to be locally present and be prepared to expand from this site directly in the ASEAN markets”, says Hans Hendrickx, Head of the Business Unit Asia Pacific. Michael Börner, Managing Director ASEAN, Australia and New Zealand, adds: “We have recently obtained the Foreign Business License, which is mandatory in Thailand to supply customers locally. Our customers in the ASEAN region were telling us that they wanted direct access to our adhesive technologies used in their local operations, the new site in Bangkok enables state-of-the-art converting and fabrication in a clean and controlled environment.”

Lohmann is already established in the Asian markets with special products. The well-known brand in the graphics industry DuploFLEX® with its innovative plate mounting tapes range was e.g. presented on the last Pack Print International fair in Bangkok. Chinoros Pongsamrithphol, Sales and Operations Manager Thailand, says: “We also got good response from the furniture manufacturing industry concerning our mirror bonding tape DuploCOLL®. And also our DuploCOLL® Clear Performance Tape (CPT) products for glass partition and shower cubic applications are already arousing great interest in the market. I am convinced that our innovative bonding solutions for the Consumer Goods & Electronics, Transportation and Medical industry may be successfully promoted with our new on-site possibilities, too.”

The official inauguration of the new site in Thailand is scheduled for November 2016.
