“Southeast Asia is an attractive region for Carboline, and we feel this expansion will serve an integral part in solidifying our role there," said Howard Combs, Vice President of International Sales with Carboline. "We believe that this additional manufacturing location is crucial to continue to grow our presence in Southeast Asia."

Their location is:
