AkzoNobel Invests in Dutch Research Laboratories to Continue its Impactful Innovation

AkzoNobel is building two new research laboratories at its Sassenheim campus in the Netherlands to accelerate the company's pioneering product development.

Work on a Powder Coatings technology center is scheduled to begin, and a new polymer lab has been opened to develop revolutionary resin technologies for all of the company's companies.

The overall investment at the Sassenheim facility, AkzoNobel's biggest worldwide R&D center, is around €8 million. The site already contains Europe's largest R&D teams for the company's Decorative Paint, Automotive and Specialty Coatings divisions. The establishment of the two additional laboratories will help the firm expand its worldwide reputation for pioneering product development that focuses on giving innovative solutions to consumers.

"Creating the new Powder Coatings lab will enable us to carry out the fundamental research needed to continue to innovate with impact and bring more sustainable products to market," says Roger Jakeman, AkzoNobel's Chief Technology Officer.
