Continental Carbon to Invest USD 300M in India

Date: 19 Oct 2022

As part of its global strategy, Continental Carbon, the world’s leading carbon black supplier, has announced to invest approx USD 300M in India. The expansion plan covers upgrading the existing plant and R&D center in the National Capital Region (NCR). Set-up in the year 2000, the current annual production capacity of carbon black at the Delhi plant stands at approximately 85,000 tons with 2 production lines. With the fresh infusion, the capacity is expected to match the global rising demand.

In addition, the R&D center in Delhi, which is one of the three global centers along with Taiwan and USA, will be further optimized to assist Continental Carbon in R&D progress and global layouts. It will further strengthen the research related to rubber, plastic, ink, coating, conductivity, and other fields of application. In addition, the centre will also enhance customer experience related to material aspect and provide related technical services.

Speaking on the occasion, T.M. Chen, President, Continental Carbon India noted, “Currently, there is a rising demand for carbon black from customers worldwide, especially from the automobile and tyre industry. The current rate of production is insufficient to match the demand and supply dynamics. Therefore, it is imperative to upgrade our infrastructure. We are in the process of recruiting young and outstanding talents from India from fields such as electro mechanical, chemical, material, and environmental engineering and help us increase our manufacturing and R&D output by another 45 percent.”

Recently, as part of its expansion plans in India, Continental Carbon commenced operations at a new manufacturing plant in Gujarat. The business unit has 4 production lines and is estimated to have an annual production capacity of approximately 150,000 tons.

Continental Carbon has been working closely with its partners in India since the start of the new millennium. Going ahead, the company will focus on the new needs of India’s rubber and plastic industry, continue to input R&D momentum and technology, and provide professional services.
