Matex 2020 Global Research Platforms Set-Up

To achieve this ambitious goal, we are further restructuring and developing the research organization to bundle our competencies across three global platforms:

  • Enhancing Clean Color Science Research with headquarters at Matex’s Global Innovation Centre in Singapore, starting January 2015
  • Establishing Advanced Materials Research with headquarters at Matex’s Innovation Centre Asia Pacific in Shanghai by 2016
  • Energising current Process Research & Chemical Engineering Competence Centres in Singapore & China Shanghai

The strong links and presence of these platforms will create new opportunities for building up and expanding customer relationships and scientific co-operations. All research platforms will be established to support the R&D needs of Matex’s customers. This will strengthen and also increase our attractiveness as a partner and an employer in the regions.
