Huntsman’s Indian subcontinent operations will be headquartered at a state-of-the-art corporate office and technical center in Mumbai, which will open in 2014. It will assist customers with tailor-made technology solutions for their market application needs. The technical team is well supported by our technical development centers in Europe to ensure efficient transfer of technology platforms to the Indian market. Huntsman also has a manufacturing presence across four locations in Ankleshwar, Chennai, Baroda, and Pune. We have more than 1,000 associates that support various business groups, laboratories, and manufacturing sites.
Our Mumbai site is the hub for ARALDITE’s® activities in the Indian subcontinent. We have invested in our green field plant in India to manufacture Araldite® resins and Aradur® hardeners. The state-of-the-art plant built in Manali, Chennai, is a part of the expansion plans we have to better serve not only the Indian but also the overseas market. With a capacity of over 30,000 MTA, a fully equipped laboratory and our trained personnel, we are fully geared up to meet the growing expectations of our customers.
Here in Chennai, India, our facility forms a key part of Huntsman’s Advanced Materials Manufacturing. We’re beneficiaries of company-provided transportation and uniforms, high quality medical insurance, and a canteen that serves excellent food. Our experienced staff has a great deal of expertise and we value safety and high standards above all else. Aside from manufacturing, we’re also an important center for administration and finance. Engineers, chemists, and accountants all get together regularly and participate in Corporate Social Responsibility activities. Chennai is a marvelous and historic city with dazzling sights. Working here, for a company that cares for us, inspires us to create great products.
Our state-of-the-art facility in Pune, India, engages in production and administration activities for Huntsman, consistently delivering high-quality products. There is a laboratory on the premises where we regularly perform formulations. Safety is number one on our list of priorities and we conduct numerous training programs to emphasize production guidelines and EHS (Environment, Health and Safety). As far as employee well-being is concerned, we have an excellent cafeteria and often participate in team-building and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities. The company provides transportation to us free of cost. As far as Pune is concerned, we love that it’s a vibrant town, filled with young people and that the culture here is "work hard and enjoy life."
In the heart of this vibrant country’s business capital is Huntsman’s corporate office for India. Our office is in charge of marketing, sales, supply chain, and HR activities. We’re equipped with a laboratory for research and development. At our office, we have a cafeteria where we lunch together, a recreation room for indoor games like carom, and a library. We’re a short distance from both the international and domestic airports. Local shops and restaurants are just around the corner and in a city as vibrant and alive as Mumbai, there’s nothing we can’t find. We often organize employee engagement activities and are very committed to our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) program. Most employees get to work by train or bus but there’s also plentiful parking for those who use their own means of transport. Mumbai is a pulsating and thriving city. Living and working here is a one-of-a-kind experience.
