The producer of specialty chemicals Stahl Group, Waalwijk/Netherlands, has opened a Center of Excellence for Performance Coatings in Suzhou/China. The environmentally friendly center will focus on innovative performance coating solutions for a wide variety of materials.
Stahl now has 9 Centers of Excellence worldwide. At each center, the company’s experts work side-by-side with partners to meet the growing demand for products and solutions that have less impact on the environment. The addition of the Suzhou Center of Excellence puts the company in an even stronger position to combine its strengths with those of its local partners to create high-quality solutions for the automotive, apparel and interior design industries.
The new center has been equipped with solar panels which provide part of the electricity that is consumed by the lab. A solar illumination and motion-detection lighting system has been implemented to save electricity.
