Nouryon Launches Global Service Center in Mumbai

The expansion reinforces its long-term commitment to India.

Nouryon, a global specialty chemicals provider, has announced the expansion of its office footprint and workforce in Mumbai, India, with the launch of a new Global Service Center. The Global Service Center includes commercial teams focused on business development in India as well as functional hubs that will support the company’s global growth plans. The newly expanded office and innovation center in Mumbai will employ a growing workforce of nearly 350 employees that will occupy approximately 50,000 square feet.

“Our expanded presence in India reinforces Nouryon’s long-term commitment to this strategically important talent and growth market,” said Charlie Shaver, Nouryon chairman and CEO. “Nouryon will continue to make sustained investments in talent development and capability enhancement to ensure Nouryon is well-positioned to maximize growth in India and around the world.”

The Global Service Center also hosts commercial teams, the innovation and application development center, as well as other supporting functional teams including customer service, finance operations, logistics, trade compliance, product safety and regulatory affairs, information management, and human resources.  

“The most recent expansion of global service capabilities in our Mumbai office complements our innovation and application development center in the same location that provides product testing and application support tailored to local needs,” said Sobers Sethi, senior vice president, Emerging Markets and China at Nouryon. “India offers a large talent pool of professionals who are passionate and interested in growing with a multinational company like Nouryon.”

Nouryon has operated in India since 1991. The Mumbai-based commercial team is focused on key end-markets including personal care, cleaning, crop nutrition, paints, coatings, and packaging. In addition to the office and innovation center in Mumbai, Nouryon operates an organic peroxide and metal alkyls production site in Mahad and has a joint venture with Atul that includes India’s largest monochloroacetic acid (MCA) plant in Gujarat. 

In February 2022, Nouryon launched a community program with Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar College by providing essential laboratory instruments for local students. In September 2022, Nouryon teams in Mumbai and Mahad joined the first-ever Global Month of Service of Nouryon and delivered educational materials to local schools.
