Ribbon cut on new plant Tuesday in Istanbul.

Huntsman Materials and Effects Europe officially cut the ribbon at its new Tuzla site in Istanbul, Turkey, Tuesday. The 5000-square meter, state-of-the-art site houses both a production facility for Advanced Materials (AdMat) and a Textile Effects (TE) Formulation and Distribution Center (FDC), along with a Technical
Center serving the European textile market. Turkey, with its dynamic textile industry, is a key strategic market for Textile Effects. By investing in the new center, TE plans to strengthen both its operations in Turkey and its global network, thereby bolstering its ability to provide best-in-class service and innovative solutions to customers and partners.  

“The opening of the plant in Tuzla represents a further milestone in the history of the Materials & Effects division,” Paul Hulme, president of Material and Effects, said. “Combining production and lab facilities into one new site will further leverage synergies. This is an exciting and strategically beneficial step towards an even stronger presence for Huntsman in Turkey.”
