Published on : Monday, November 11, 2013

downloadIncheon airport had a ground breaking ceremony at Free Trade Zone in the airport, to build Johnson Matthey Catalysts’ Asian logistics center.


Johnson Matthey is a British multinational chemicals and precious metals company headquartered in London, United Kingdom.


The foreign investment company, Johnson Matthey Catalysts plans to kick start its business in Incheon around March 2014, once this 4,000m2 center is completed.


The logistics center will keep around 35,000 types of chemical products of Alfa Aesar until they are distributed to Asian nations.


Through this center, the company is expected to create over KW 45 billion of added value and 300 tons of throughputs annually, which will ultimately lead to boost the economic growth in Incheon area by adding to local jobs.


Incheon Airport is building its brand awareness as a logistics hub by welcoming a recent series of global conglomerates. Among them, STATS Chip Pac Korea most recently began to build its manufacturing facilities and R&D center September.


Meanwhile, opening of Johson Matthey’s logistics center is meaningful as it is the first logistics center to be built through direct investment from the global manufacturing firm since the opening of airport logistics complex in 2006.


“The purpose of the logistics complex was only keeping exported and imported goods, at the beginning of the opening. Now, it grew to find new business models fitted to Incheon Airport. It builds distribution centers for products that are bound for Asian nations, and integrated distribution center for local businesses.” said a person concerned, adding that all of these would help Incheon Airport be a logistics hub in name and deed.
