Musim Mas Group to Develop a State-of-the-Art Ethoxylation Facility at the Site of Dow Benelux B.V. Terneuzen, the Netherlands
Terneuzen, Benelux - Maschem B.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Musim Mas Group, is to develop a state-of-the-art Ethoxylation Facility at the site of Dow Benelux B.V. in Terneuzen. The Ethoxylation Facility is scheduled to be in production in early 2015.
The state-of-the-art facility will produce surface active agents or more commonly known as surfactants based on alcohols, oils, esters, fatty acids and amines. The surfactants produced are used as raw materials in personal care products and detergents.
The collaboration will see Maschem B.V. operating the Ethoxylation Facility and Dow Benelux B.V. supplying key raw material and site services to the former. Both parties are confident and optimistic in establishing a long-term and reliable partnership.
This Project will add to the vibrancy of the Terneuzen region. Besides creating direct and indirect employment opportunities to the region, the Project will also encourage higher throughputs via regional ports, railways and roads. Substantial economic spin-off to the region will also be achieved via the sourcing of local materials, equipment as well as support services for the Ethoxylation Facility.
This Project is Musim Mas Group's inaugural investment in the Netherlands. Nonetheless, it has been doing business with the Netherlands for the past three decades. With its existing established marketing network, Musim Mas Group is committed to further develop Terneuzen into its business activity hub in the ARA region.
