Shin-Etsu Chemical will spend $165 million to expand its silicones site in Gunma, Japan, which it calls the world’s largest production base for the materials. The company will build an R&D building as well as facilities to produce specialty silicones in small batches to supply the auto, cosmetics, chemicals, and health care industries. And in Niigata, Japan, Shin-Etsu will build a small plant dedicated to the production of silicones for marine paints. Shin-Etsu aims to grow its silicones business by more than 10% annually.
