In 1992, SNF won the tender of Daqing Oilfield for a 50 kt/a Polyacrylamide plant construction project, which is the key project of China’s “Eighth-Five” Plan. An office in Beijing was set up in 1996 to promote products and services in the Chinese market. After that, SNF decided to invest in the construction of a local plant to better serve customers and end-users in China.
SNF CHINA was founded in Taixing in 1998 and started its first production line in 2001; SNF RUDONG was founded in Rudong in 2011 and started production in 2018. Over the past two decades, SNF has grown substantially in China. China has now become the third-largest market in the world for SNF products and services.
At present, SNF has two major production sites in Taixing and Rudong of Jiangsu province, six sales branches/offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Wuhan, Xi’an, and one Specialty Chemicals Division. SNF China primarily services customers and end-users in China and the Asia Pacific region, focusing on municipal/industry water treatment, oil/gas, mining, paper, and other applications.
In China, SNF is the leading manufacturer of water-soluble polymers, with extensive product lines that include:
- Cationic monomers
