ST. LOUIS, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sigma-Aldrich® Corporation (NASDAQ: SIAL) today announced the opening of its new facility in Wuxi, China, that will provide localized packaging, analytical services and quality control for high-quality products to support the Company's research and industrial customers in the region.

"Over the last decade China has invested heavily in industrial growth, and now we are viewing a similar expansion in China's healthcare, pharmaceuticals and life-science markets," said Rakesh Sachdev, Sigma-Aldrich President and CEO.  "A core part of our Company's growth strategy is to invest in high growth emerging markets and expanding our global footprint.  China represents a significant opportunity for Sigma-Aldrich and the establishment of our presence in Wuxi demonstrates our long-term commitment toward this rapidly growing market."

The new facility sits on approximately 20 acres of land and includes a dedicated quality control center, a state-of-the-art analytical application laboratory and packaging building. The Wuxi campus provides a platform for future expansion of products and services.  

"Our investment in the Wuxi New District is a logical evolution that underlines our commitment to our customers and reinforces China as a strategic regional supply chain hub for Asia-Pacific," said Eric Green, Sigma-Aldrich Vice President and Managing Director, International. "The Wuxi site further enables us to provide high quality products with higher service levels and a broader product portfolio tailored for the local markets."

The opening of the new multi-million dollar facility was inaugurated on March 13 in a ceremony attended by Sachdev and Green and more than 150 guests including senior government officials and key customers.
