DowDuPont to Invest $100 Million to Expand Manufacturing Capacity at Sabine River Works

Introduction:

DowDuPont announced a plan to make a series of investments totaling approximately $100 million over the next two years to expand manufacturing capacity and to modernize facilities at the Sabine River Works (SRW) plant in Orange County, Texas

Features:

The investments will incrementally expand production capacity to support global growth of specialty materials manufactured at the site, specifically the Surlyn®, Nucrel®, Fusabond® and Vamac® product lines. Additionally, the company is evaluating longer-term plans to invest in a new facility to further support market growth.

The joint investment will support customer growth of both the Packaging & Specialty Plastics (P&SP) business of DowDuPont’s Materials Science Division (to be named Dow), as well as the Transportation & Advanced Polymers (T&AP) business of its Specialty Products Division (to be named DuPont).

The added capacity is expected to come online in several phases starting in 2020 and will enable both divisions to meet growing demand for Surlyn®, Nucrel®, Fusabond® (P&SP) and Vamac® (T&AP) specialty materials used for applications in food packaging, transportation and consumer goods.
