Evonik building Asian research hub in Singapore.
  Wednesday 10 January, 2018
Evonik building Asian research hub in Singapore.

German speciality chemicals company Evonik has announced it will build its first research

hub in Singapore with operations expected to begin in 2018. The R&D facility will focus on

functional surfaces and additive manufacturing and will create around 50 jobs.

Claus Rettig, board chairman of Evonik Resource Efficiency, remarked: “The research hub in

Singapore not only demonstrates our ongoing commitment to expand our R&D footprint in Asia

but also reflects the growing significance of Asia in the global innovation landscape.” The

research hub is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), which has

helped Evonik grow its presence in Singapore over the past few years.

Beh Swan Gin, chairman of the EDB, said the site will support Singapore’s efforts in

advanced manufacturing as well as strengthen its position in R&D and technologies in Asia

and globally. The research hub will be situated in Biopolis, the center for entrepreneurial

R&D activities in Singapore. Positioned near other public and private research institutions

and organizations, Evonik said it will be able to leverage the existing R&D value chain and

take advantage of synergies within the scientific research community.

The chemicals firm has production sites, sales offices, innovation and technical service

centers located in the region in Australia, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, New

Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
