The plant will support the Korean PM market and supply the local automotive industry.

“I am very happy and confident about our future in Korea,” said Frank Song, manager of Höganäs Korea. “With the Busan Plant we can fully support the Korean market and other Asian markets as well.”

The new mixing plant has been built to minimise the distance from warehousing to mixing, packing and finally delivery. It features a test laboratory and the first ISO 9000 certification is already in place.
