BRB is proud to announce that the new Viscotech Asia Plant has been successfully opened on August 1st, 2016 in Singapore. This Joint Venture between Ban Guan Chemical, a wholly owned subsidiary of Malayan Daching and BRB Singapore Pte Ltd. provides a strong connection to the Asian business culture and is in line with BRB’s philosophy to grow through local partnerships.

The core values of BRB are Ambition, Flexibility, Innovation and Passion for what we do. In Ban Guan Chemical we have found a partner who shares these values. This synergy, combined with a strong sense of entrepreneurship, has proven to be a great match and has led to the formation of Viscotech Asia Pte Ltd.

For our Lube Oil Additives and Chemicals division, this is the first production joint venture in Asia and it offers the opportunity for BRB to increase its flexibility in supply and a basis for future expansion, whilst being closer to our growing Asian customer base.

The CEO of BRB International BV, Mr. Ralph Pinckaers and the owner of Ban Guan Chemical Mr. San Sim kicked off the opening ceremony: Together we are stronger, together we can grow faster and better towards our common goals!

The owner of Malayan Daching, Mr. Sem Peng Sim expressed that: "Ban Guan Chemical is a 100% subsidiary of Malayan Daching. In a way, this feels like our son is getting married today, which makes this an even more happy event." He is confident that with BRB’s market presence in Singapore, Viscotech Asia will generate more business and capture more market in Asia.

After the ribbon cutting ceremony, the Vice President of the Lube Oil Additives and Chemicals division, Mr. Roger Dohmen together with the CEO Mr. Ralph Pinckaers shared a plate of orange and green lettuce with Mr. Sem Peng Sim and Mr. San Sim, to wish for great fortune and great favor in the coming years! The traditional lion dance performance also symbolized the assurance that all of BRB and Ban Guan Chemical’s efforts regarding the Viscotech Asia plant will met with success. The ceremony was a wonderful example of merging cultures and people through business and shared values.

The plant is designed to manufacture liquid Viscosity Modifiers which are marketed under the name Viscotech®. Viscosity modifiers are used in multi-grade engine oils, gear oils, automatic transmission fluids, greases and various hydraulic fluids. Viscotech Asia uses premium and tested raw materials and proven processes to ensure that our quality level meets or exceeds the market demands.
