Chem-Trend will expand its R&D facilities at its global headquarters in Howell, Mich. to allow for continued growth of its research and development activities. Completion of the project is targeted for mid-2017.

Chem-Trend’s research and development facilities will expand by approximately 50 percent with the project at its existing campus in Howell. The expansion is planned to accommodate additional R&D facilities that include an applied research laboratory, an analytical laboratory featuring advanced chemical analysis equipment and industry-dedicated laboratories that, in close collaboration with the company’s additional R&D laboratories located globally, develop innovative technologies and deliver technical service to Chem-Trend’s worldwide customer base in the die casting, polyurethane, rubber, composites, tire, thermoplastics and wood composite industry segments.

Similar investments by Chem-Trend and its parent company Freudenberg Chemical Specialities (FCS) have been completed in recent years at its locations in Brazil, India and China, with an additional expansion just announced for facilities in Germany in 2017.
