Mineral resources company AsiaPhos is embarking on an internal restructuring involving its subsidiaries in China and Hong Kong. The move is aimed at expanding its downstream business, which focuses on the production and sale of phosphate-based chemicals, it said yesterday.
As part of the restructuring, its unit Sichuan Mianzhu Norwest Phosphate Chemical, which handles both upstream and downstream businesses, will see the downstream portion hived off to a newly incorporated subsidiary.
AsiaPhos said the entire equity stake in the subsidiary will then be sold to another of its unit APC in Hong Kong. Following the restructuring, Sichuan Mianzhu will continue to carry out the group's mining operations and activities in Sichuan.
The company also announced plans to build a 6 million yuan (S$1.2 million) plant that can be used in the water treatment, food processing, paints, mining and chemical manufacturing sectors.
