Lanxess: Groundbreaking for First Production Facility in North Carolina

Lanxess, Pittsburgh, USA, broke ground on a new compounding facility in the United States. The new production facility in Gastonia, North Carolina, will have an initial capacity of 20,000 t/a. It will be the first compounding facility for the Lanxess high-tech plastics Durethan and Pocan in the United States. Basic polymers, such as polyamide and polybutylene terephthalate, are mixed and refined with additives in the compounding facility to produce Durethan and Pocan as per customer needs.

The facility represents an initial investment of EUR 10 million and is expected to create up to 55 new jobs locally. Construction is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2011 and production is scheduled to begin in 2012.
