Wacker Química do Brasil Ltda. was established in São Paulo, in 1977 – marking an important milestone in the Group’s South American expansion. In Jandira near São Paulo, Wacker now manufactures silicone products used, for example, in the textile, construction, paper, agrochemical, personal care and cosmetics industries.

The company is currently building a new multifunctional facility at the site for manufacturing antifoam agents and functional silicone fluids. Investments for the expansion will total around €7 million. WACKER’s Jandira technical center further offers customers special support with the development of new products and applications for the South American market. With over 100 employees, WACKER Brazil generated sales of around €90 million in 2016.
