Lanxess will employ about 250 people at the Jhagadia site during its first stage of expansion. The head office of Lanxess India Private Ltd. will, however, remain in Thane. Jhagadia will become the company’s second production site in India after Madurai in Tamil Nadu, southern India, and will be the larger of the two.

The Asia-Pacific region is of crucial significance to Lanxess, the company reports. In the third quarter of 2007, sales in the region were up 2.2% on the previous year at 325 million euros. Adjusted for currency effects and the activities divested in the previous year, sales grew by 6%. This was due in part to the positive development in India, where Lanxess currently employs around 300 people. The Asia-Pacific region’s share of total sales rose from 18.8% to 19.1%.
