MFG Chemical to move headquarters

July 31/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- MFG Chemical, a global leader in specialty and custom chemical manufacturing, says it is moving its corporate headquarters to Chattanooga, Tennessee from Dalton, Georgia, according to Chemweek.

The move is due to growth at the company, which has created a need for more work space at the headquarters.

MFGs manufacturing sites at Dalton will continue to operate, with executive, finance, human resources, and sales staff relocating to Chattanooga, which is 25 miles from Dalton.

MFG Chemical has outgrown its original headquarters in Dalton, Georgia, says MFG president and CEO Paul Turgeon.

The new headquarters location will be in downtown Chattanooga.

As MRC reported earlier, in October 2019, MFG Chemical successfully renewed its ISO 9001:2015 Certifications at each of its three Dalton, Georgia facilities. MFG was one of the first chemical companies to achieve ISO 9001: 2015 certification in October of 2016, and has now been audited and certified four times.

We remind that MFG Chemical has upgradied its Pasadena, Texas plant, which the company acquired in March 2018. The acquisition of the Pasadena plant, together with the companys 3 plants in Northwest Georgia, made MFG Chemical one of Americas largest consumers of Maleic Anhydride (MA). Pasadena plant improvements were scheduled for completion by the end of the 1st Quarter of 2019,  and entail a multi-million dollar investment.

Maleic anhydride is a feedstock for the production of tetrahydrofuran, tetrahydrophthalic anhydride, films and synthetic fibers, pharmaceuticals, detergents, plasticizers, maleic, succinic, fumaric and malic acids, and a number of agricultural chemicals.

Plasticizers are substances introduced into a polymeric material to make it elastic and plastic during processing and operation. In particular, plasticizers are used for the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The share of plasticizers used for the production of PVC products is about 80%.

According to MRC's DataScope report, imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Russia totalled 13,800 tonnes in the first half of 2020, up by 5% year on year, whereas exports grew by 7% year on year.
