Degussa: Expanding Rigid Foam to North America
Degussa is planning to build a production plant for the rigid polymethacrylimide foam Rohacell at its largest US site in Mobile, Alabama. The new plant by the world’s leading specialty chemicals company comprises an investment volume of about USD 10 million and is scheduled to commence operation in mid-2008.
Inspec Foams, Inc., of Allen, Texas, a wholly owned subsidiary of Degussa, will manufacture Rohacell in Mobile to the same high standard of quality as in Degussa’s first and, until now, only plant in Darmstadt, Germany. The construction of local Rohacell production facilities will considerably reduce lead times on the North American continent, and further enhance technical customer service.
