Braskem to invest US$50 mln in US polypropylene business next year

September 27/2010

(plastemart) -- Braskem America plans to invest US$50 mln in its US polypropylene business through 2011 to better serve its customers and to position the company for growth in the North American market. These investments will focus on upgrading facilities' infrastructure, integrating business processes with parent company Braskem S.A., and implementing Braskem's quality and productivity programs. More than $35 million will be invested in manufacturing assets, of which US$15 mln will be targeted to the La Porte, Texas plant. Company officials said the Texas-based plant will play a key role in supporting the growth of Braskem America's overall business. Following an extensive review of the operations at the La Porte facility, Braskem America will take steps to further improve competitiveness in its polypropylene business by expanding capacity on its more modern Spheripol technology line and idling its slurry technology line. Production of polymers currently made on the slurry technology line will be transitioned within the La Porte facility and to the company's other manufacturing plants in the US.
