Clariant announced the increase of the ether amines production at its Suzano, Brazil facility. Targeted specifically to meet the needs of the mining industry, the planned expansion will allow Clariant to meet the growing demands of customers in Brazil as well as support global customers who are also expanding mineral processing capacity.

“Clariant is aiming to expand its global footprint in the Mining industry, especially in Latin America where we can build on our longterm experience in Brazil. This investment is in line with our strategy to focus on fast growing markets where we have a leading position”, comments Christian Kohlpaintner, Member of Clariant’s Executive Committee.

Clariant’s multimillion Swiss franc production capacity expansion will be completed in two phases over the next 18 months. The first phase of the Suzano plant's capacity will be completed in the third quarter of 2014. The second phase, which will double the capacity, is expected to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2015.
