Wacker Chemie is building a research and development facility for silicones in Ann Arbor, MI, USA. The site is expected to open in the first half of 2017.

The facility will support the company’s overall business and product development in the North, Central and South America regions. In a first phase, a single digit million US-dollar figure is invested, mainly for equipment and installation of the labs.

According to the company, they chose Ann Arbor because of the availability of highly skilled talent pools, close proximity to respected area universities and to WACKER’s production site in Adrian.
