S$807 million chemical production complex opens on Jurong Island

SINGAPORE: Specialty chemicals firm Evonik on Tuesday (Nov 4) opened its €500 million (S$807 million) production complex on Singapore's Jurong Island - the German company's largest investment in a single chemical project.

The facility will make methionine, an amino acid used as an additive in animal feed. The complex has an annual capacity of 150,000 metric tonnes, bringing Evonik's methionine production ability worldwide to 580,000 metric tonnes. It will also boost supply security for the firm's customers in Asia.

With the new plant, 200 jobs will be created for skilled workers.

Evonik said Singapore's business-friendly and stable environment, coupled with its excellent logistics infrastructure, were among reasons why it chose to site the investment in the country.

Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam officially opened the complex on Tuesday.
