On 08th of January 2015 the opening ceremony of Connect Jingjiang’s’ new production site took place in Yishui, LinYi City, China. The new production site is running by the name “LinYi Connect Chemical Technology Co. Ltd.” and replaces the old facility running under “Connect Jingjian Chemicals Co. Ltd.”, although Connect Jingjian will still remain as sales center for the new plant in LinYi.
From first discussions with the local government until the first production batch, it took not more than one year until the construction of the new facility in LinYi was finished. First commercial production runs were performed successfully in December 2014 already.
The main product of the new facility is Ethylbenzyl Chloride (EBC) with a designed capacity of 2500 tons.
Further products that are produced in the LinYi facility are the following:
Dirk Otmar (Managing Director Connect Chemicals Holding GmbH) and Qiping Hou (General Manager of Connect Chemicals China), attended the opening ceremony of the new plant, as well as Business Development Manager Dr. Christian Beierlein from CC Germany and Ms. Jane Ji from CC Wuxi, China. Apart from Connect Chemicals’ members, a lot of local representatives attended the opening ceremony of the LinYi plant as well, for example the mayor of LinYi (name?) and various secretaries
