Sabic: Official Opening of U.S.-Based Compounding Plant

Manufacturing at Sabic’s Bay St. Louis, Mississippi manufacturing site

Sabic’s Innovative Plastics business celebrated a major milestone with the official opening of its specialty polypropylene (PP) compounding operation at its Bay St. Louis, Mississippi manufacturing site. The new compounding operation will supply Sabic PP compounds and Stamax* long glass fiber-filled PP (LGFPP) composites for a wide range of automotive applications. The company’s new PP operation answers fast-accelerating demand from automotive OEMs and tiers for local supply of globally-consistent PP materials in North America, supporting production of both regional and global vehicle platforms. This is the second time in 17 months that Sabic has opened a PP compounding facility, having celebrated the start-up of its Genk, Belgium plant in June 2010. Sabic’s PP investments underscore the company’s commitment to provide high-performance materials that can help automotive OEMs pursue weight reduction opportunities and achieve energy-efficient improvements in vehicles.

Innovative Plastics installed the new PP capacity in Bay St. Louis by drawing upon the design and technology of the company’s Genk plant, the largest greenfield PP compounding plant ever built in Europe.
