Speciality chemical company Clariant and Asian agribusiness group Wilmar International have agreed to set up a joint venture to produce and sell fatty amines and their derivatives.
The company will be headquartered in Singapore. Clariant will be contributing its Industrial and Chemical Specialities Business Unit’s sales of these products as well as its amine plants in Germany and Brazil, while Wilmar will contribute a new plant in China plus the oleochemical needs of the fatty amines business.

The joint venture will be operational in mid-2013, assuming appropriate regulatory approvals. “This collaboration combines Wilmar's integrated agribusiness model and our large presence in basic and downstream oleochemicals with Clariant's technical expertise and established market presence in amines,” said Clariant CEO Hariolf Kottmann.
