The newly opened Adhesive Competence Center allows the adhesives expert to fulfill existing and steadily growing demand from industry in China and Southeast Asia. Clients and partners can now also benefit from Bodo Möller Chemie’s expertise and expanded service in this region too. The laboratory provides numerous services specifically tailored to the needs of the highly technological Asian markets. Available tests include analyses to determine viscosity, life cycles, lap shear strength, signs of aging, and temperature change behavior in adhesive joints. To provide this service, the laboratory boasts state-of-the-art equipment, including a universal testing machine, a viscometer, a UV chamber, an environmental chamber, a vacuum drying oven, and advanced manual and semi-automatic dosing technology. “Bodo Möller Chemie translates the chemical data of adhesives into mechanical and electromagnetic data for our clients’ engineers,” explains Frank Haug, Chairman of the Board, Bodo Möller Chemie Group. “This way, we help our clients to develop innovative solutions and boost their competitiveness.” These advanced services include assistance from technical consultants during the entire development process, right through to series production.

The grand opening coincided with a change in management: since March 2024, Kevin Pang has held the position of Managing Director of the Bodo Möller Chemie branches in China (Shanghai and Hong Kong) and has also taken on the role of General Director for the newly opened subsidiary in Vietnam. He started as Sales Manager in the then newly created Chinese subsidiary back in 2015. “Kevin Pang has made a major contribution to Bodo Möller Chemie China’s growth,” affirms Lionel Breuilly, President of Bodo Möller Chemie APAC. “His appointment is a key step in advancing our presence in the region further and in reaching our strategic goals.” Kevin Pang stressed the new laboratory’s strategic importance during his inauguration speech: “Our new Adhesive Competence Center will make a considerable contribution to further developing adhesive technology in Asia. It’s another step in our mission to offer our clients the best possible service.”

With this expansion and the new executive, Bodo Möller Chemie is further cementing its status as a premier supplier of adhesive solutions across the globe. The company already operates Adhesive Competence Centers in Spain and Poland.
