Munich-based chemical company Wacker, also a provider of food ingredients solutions, is expanding in Southeast Asia by opening a representative office in Myanmar’s capital Yangon.


The office in Yangon will distribute products of the chemical business divisions—silicones, polymers and biosolutions—catering for customers in the coatings and food industries, among others.

“With the new representative office in Yangon, we will be able to keep pace with future market growth, offering our local customers and partners better support than ever,” said Patrick de Wolf, managing director, Wacker Southeast Asia.

Dynamic growth in Myanmar’s economy, particularly in the food, construction, personal and household care sectors, drove the decision to open up the new representative office.

The office is the company’s seventh in Southeast Asia and will enable the company to increase its presence across the region and provide local support to its customers and business partners. The company now has 27 sales offices in Asia—seven of them located in Southeast Asia, with the regional headquarters based in Singapore.
