1970 marked the foundation of Kaneka Belgium in Westerlo, Belgium – as the company’s very first subsidiary outside Japan, and the first production site of a Japanese chemical company in Belgium. Since then, Kaneka Belgium has expanded its business and R&D activities to encompass diverse functional and foamed plastics solutions, developing and manufacturing specialty materials for applications in industrial, automotive, building & construction, packaging, consumer, DIY, and residential sectors.
Worldwide, Kaneka Corporation employs a staff of over 10.000 employees. In Westerlo, about 330 employees work across three production units, R&D and supporting back-office roles. In 2018, Kaneka won the Foreign Investment of the Year Trophy, as recognition for its investment in a third cutting-edge modified silicone polymer production line at its facility in Westerlo.
