The company already operates production units for a number of multinational companies including Solutia, Flexsys, Ferro Corporation and National Starch, but is now offering a further 35 hectares of land.
The utilities and infrastructure available on-site mean investors are able to decrease their investment costs and time to market. Other advantages include access to a range of raw materials via pipeline or storage, shared overheads, local know-how, and easy access to transport networks.
The Monsanto Antwerp production site was constructed in 1965 in a specially developed harbor and industrial area north of the city of Antwerp, Flanders, and grew rapidly. By 1972 production included plasticizers, rubber chemicals, triallate for Avadex herbicide, ABS plastics, and Butvar resin for Saflex interlayer.
Steady growth then saw the addition of polymers for adhesives, glyphosate for Roundup and other herbicides, Butvar RB resin, and 4ADPA intermediate for PPD Rubber Chemicals. Monsanto Europe currently employs some 900 people.
