LANXESS is strengthening its product portfolio for biocides to serve the megatrend urbanization. The German specialty chemicals group has acquired Singapore-based PCTS Specialty Chemicals Pte. Ltd. for an undisclosed amount. The transaction closes with immediate effect.

Through the acquisition, LANXESS is now one of the leading suppliers of biocides for paints and coatings in the rapidly-growing Asia-Pacific region. LANXESS will gain access to a complementary portfolio of biocides and will benefit from PCTS’ highly-recognized product expertise and know-how in paints and coatings.

PCTS specializes in biocides for environmentally friendly water-based paints that meet stringent health and safety, as well as environmental standards. Biocides prevent the deterioration and discoloring of the paints caused by microorganisms.

PCTS employs about 20 people at modern production and laboratory facilities close to LANXESS Singapore headquarters. PCTS recorded sales in the single-digit million euro range in 2012, with 60 percent of it being generated in China. The company was majority owned by NIPSEA Technologies Pte Ltd.

“This transaction underlines LANXESS’ standing as a key supplier of high-tech solutions for the megatrend urbanization,” said Rainier van Roessel, Member of the LANXESS Board of Management. “It also strengthens our company’s asset base in the booming Asian market.”

PCTS will be integrated into the LANXESS business unit Material Protection Products (MPP), which belongs to the company’s Performance Chemicals segment. The PCTS facility will also become the new Asia-Pacific headquarters of MPP. The business unit is already one of the world’s leading suppliers of biocides. It acquired the U.S.-based biocide company Verichem Inc. and the material protection activities of Switzerland’s Syngenta in 2011.

MPP also offers stabilizing agents for beverages and is the world’s leading manufacturer of phenolic active ingredients for disinfection. Its production sites are located in Krefeld-Uerdingen and Dormagen (Germany), Pittsburgh (USA), Jhagadia (India) and Changzhou (China). The business unit is headed by Torsten Derr and currently employs around 350 people.
