Nouryon opens integrated services office in Houston

July 13/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Nouryon says it has opened a new integrated services office for its North America business in Houston, Texas, reported Chemweek.

The facility will employ 50 people initially, covering logistics, customer service, engineering, procurement, manufacturing support, and sustainability, with more than 100 to be employed eventually, it says.

The company has three major chemical production sites and employs nearly 700 people in the Houston area, according to Nouryon. The company opened the worlds first metal alkyls production site in Battleground, Texas, in 1959 and later added sites in Pasadena and Houston, it says.

"We have a long history with Houston, and this is the right time for Nouryon to build on our successful relationship with the city," says Charles Shaver, CEO at Nouryon. "While the world faces one of its greatest economic challenges, we are demonstrating our commitment to Houston by bringing in high quality jobs and future employment opportunities," he says.

As MRC wrote previously, in February 2019, Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals) announced that it  would license its innovative continuous initiator dosing (CiD) technology to Karpatnaftochim, Ukraines largest polyvinyl chloride (PVC) producer. Nouryons patented CiD technology allows PVC producers to increase reactor output by up to 40 percent, improve product quality, and make the production process intrinsically safer - all with minimum capital expenditure.

According to ICIS-MRC Price report, Ukrainian company Karpatneftekhim (Kalush, Ivano-Frankivsk region) has increased prices of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) for July deliveries to the domestic market by USD70-80/tonne under the pressure from higher feedstock prices.
