American chemicals manufacturer Huntsman Corporation has opened a polyurethane systems factory in Dubai as part of its growth strategy for the Middle East, with the Jebel Ali Free Trade Zone (Jafza) chemicals factory to manufacture polyurethane foams and polyster polyols for construction and insulation, amongst other applications.

The Dubai facility joins Huntman’s Middle Eastern hubs such as Huntsman EMA, a systems house in Turkey and Huntsman Arab Polyols Company in Saudi Arabia.

Commenting on the development, president of Huntsman’s polyurethanes division, Tony Hankins, said: “This investment is the latest step in the expansion of our worldwide systems house capabilities.

“Constructing the new systems house at Jafza brings us closer to our customers and gives us everything we need to expand our business in the Middle East and North Africa, including manufacturing competitiveness, infrastructure links, and speed of response.”
