Lubrizol to Expand Global CPVC Manufacturing Capabilitie

Oct 08 2012

The Lubrizol Corporation apprised that it intends to build a resin and compounding manufacturing facility in Deer Park, TX. The additional capacity will serve Lubrizol building and construction customers on a global basis. The new plant will require a total investment of approximately $125 million over a three-year period. Lubrizol projects continued strong global growth in its CPVC business, with particularly strong demand in India and other developing economies. To provide ongoing support to its global customers in achieving their business success, the company is launching a multi-phased CPVC capacity expansion plan beginning with a new resin and compounding facility in Texas. Lubrizol evaluated several options for the plan's first phase and determined that the most efficient and effective next step is to build a new plant located adjacent to Lubrizol's existing Deer Park additives facility, leveraging current Lubrizol infrastructure and expertise. Additional site benefits include its close proximity to the Gulf shipping channel and direct access to pipeline chlorine. The world class facility is expected to be operational by fourth quarter 2014 and is designed to complement the company's existing CPVC manufacturing facilities. Commenting on the expansion plan, Eric Schnur, president of Lubrizol Advanced Materials said, "By expanding our manufacturing footprint, we are ensuring future technology requirements are met and our responses to changes in demand are well managed. With this additional capacity, we will be in a much stronger position to better serve the needs of our existing and future customers globally.
