OCSiAl’s investment will total about EUR 80 to 100 million and the project is expected to generate up to 200 highly qualified jobs in R&D, manufacturing, sales and marketing, maintenance and support services.

This project is in line with our economic diversification policy, which focuses on the sector of innovative materials and on research-intensive activities, and I am confident that the new OCSiAl operations in Luxembourg will be a great opportunity to further enhance the recognition of our composite materials competence centre,” commented Etienne Schneider, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy.
