India produces 4 million cars and 9 million refrigerators annually, and demand for polyurethane is also expected to increase. Many Japanese and Korean auto and home appliance manufacturers have developed a presence in the country, especially in Southern India, and MCNS will expand its business by reliably supplying high-quality polyurethane system products with the system house.

MCNS is a 50:50 joint venture company between Mitsui Chemicals and SKC established by integrating their polyurethane businesses in July 2015. It supplies polyurethane system products from system houses in 10 locations around the world, including the United States, Mexico, China and Poland, based on a production capacity of 280,000 tons of polyol, 250,000 tons of MDI and 120,000 tons of TDI. With the establishment of the system house this time, MCNS will develop its business in India and accelerate the strengthening of its global competitiveness by expanding system house businesses, mainly in areas other than India where high growth is expected.
