Solutia Inc. recently celebrated the grand opening of its new plant in Suzhou, China, Prime Newswire reports. The plant is a manufacturing site for the company''s Saflex® business. Saflex is the world''s leading producer and seller of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers. The Suzhou plant site is ideally suited for future expansion of Saflex and for other Solutia businesses. The plant has been developed as a full-scale facility that currently produces Saflex interlayer for the automotive market, with room for future capacity to serve the architectural market as well. The current manufacturing line is designed to produce approximately 10 million square meters of Saflex interlayer per year, with space for further expansion as market growth requires more capacity. Saflex customers who participated in the opening ceremony included senior representatives from the Fuyao Glass Industries Group and Xinyi Glass Holdings Limited, as well as key representatives from major multinational customers and many Chinese laminators. In addition to the Suzhou plant, Solutia''s Saflex presence in the Asia-Pacific region includes a regional customer service center and finishing and distribution center in Singapore, as well as sales offices across the region.
