"The Russian Federation is recognized as an important and fast growing economy, with double digit growth rates predicted for polyurethan products," Anthony P. Hankins, president of Huntsman’s polyurethanes division, said in a statement.

He added that the investment will give Huntsman greater access to the high-value coatings, adhesives and elastomers markets through an established, state-of-the-art operations platform.

Huntsman has approximately 12,000 employees and operates multiple locations worldwide. The company reported 2011 revenue of more than $11 billion.
