Celanese plans to construct a new production unit in Southeast Asia for vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) emulsions, the company announced on Thursday.

The unit is expected to begin production by mid-2016. The specific location of the plant has not yet been disclosed.

“This proposed expansion will support our global and regional growth strategy to expand our reach into the markets of Southeast Asia,” said Mark Murray, vice president and general manager of Celanese's emulsion polymers business. 

“Building a VAE plant in Southeast Asia would broaden our network to better serve customers throughout the Asia-Pacific region, primarily in the high-end applications of architectural coatings, building and construction, carpets, and paper industries," he added.

Celanese describes itself as a global technology and specialty materials company and a global leader in VAE emulsions.
