Arkema SA Finalises Joint Venture Deal with Jurong Chemical

Arkema SA announced that it had finalised its joint venture deal with Jurong Chemical, a unit of Sunvic Chemical Holdings Ltd. The parties have now formed a new company called Sunke, with Arkema holding a majority stake in it. With this transaction, Arkema aims to take control of an acrylic acid production site in Taixing, eastern China, owned by Jurong Chemical. The venture comprises the assets of the industrial complex, which currently has two production lines with a third one to come on stream in the first quarter of 2015, bringing its total annual production capacity to 480,000 tonnes. For an initial investment of USD 240 million, Arkema now has access to half of the site's current production, namely 160,000 tonnes per year. Once the third line is ready, the company will have the option to access two thirds of the total capacity in return for an additional USD 235 million. Arkema will have the right to acquire the rest over the next five years for a further USD 165 million. The initial investment will enable Arkema to serve its customers in China and in Asia operating in markets such as superabsorbents, paints, adhesives and water treatment.
