Momentive business & technology center for Bangalore

Bangalore will be the site of a Global Research and Development Centre for two Momentive Performance Materials Holdings (Columbus, OH) subsidiaries: Momentive Performance Materials and Momentive Specialty Chemicals. The former is a leading silicones supplier.

Research scientists based at the facility will work on new technology platforms and product development for new and existing applications in industry segments including personal care, energy, healthcare, electronics, automotive, and construction.

In addition, the centre will serve as Momentive's regional headquarters and will house its commercial and business support functions. Completion of the centre, already under construction, is anticipated for the first quarter of 2012.

Momentive currently has its regional headquarters in Bangalore and silicone manufacturing and warehousing operations in Chennai. India represents one of the fastest-growing regions for Momentive, says Craig O. Morrison, Momentive Chairman & CEO, and is projected to be a key growth area for the company in the future.-[email protected]
