A Glimpse at Evonik in Singapore
Evonik set up first offices in Singapore in 1969, starting with sales only and later including production and research. Today, Singapore is the headquarters and the innovation hub for the Asia Pacific South region. Supplying and producing locally, we are constantly stepping up our presence to strengthen the competitiveness of our customers through research and applications.
In Singapore, our manufacturing assets include the world’s largest production complex for essential amino acid DL-methionine within Evonik's network and an oil additives production site on Jurong Island. It also includes two manufacturing facilities in Tuas, with one producing Epoxy Curing Agent, Ink & Hotmelt Resin and Polyurethane Catalyst Blends, and another catalyst recovery center.
Singapore is composed of one main island, 63 satellite islands and islets, and one outlying islet and has the third highest population density in the world which allows this vibrant South Asian country to combine the energy of a bustling metropolis and the charm of tropical islands. With a multicultural population, Singapore has four official languages and integrates multiracialism in the constitution and all vital aspects of governance and public policy.
