Global chemical manufacturer MFG Chemical is launching a “multi-million dollar” project to boost capacity at its recently-purchased plant in Pasadena, TX, the Dalton, GA-based company announced in a press release Wednesday.
“MFG is increasing its capacity to meet its customers’ growing needs for custom and specialty chemicals. Our significant capital investments in our Pasadena, TX plant, as well as our three other world-class ISO 9001:2015 Certified manufacturing plants in Dalton, GA, reflect our ongoing effort to deepen our manufacturing and formulating partnerships with our valued customers,” the firm’s chief executive officer, Keith Arnold, said in a statement.
Under the plan, the company will work to debottleneck the plant and increase capacity with the addition of new reactors, including one 20,000 gal-sized unit, and other improvements. Work on the site is expected to reach completion by the first quarter of next year.
The company acquired the Pasadena site in its purchase of Houston, TX-based Gulf Bayport Chemicals LP in mid-March this year.
MFG Chemical manufactures a range of products including amides, water soluble polymers, rheology modifiers, surfactants, and dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinates (DOSS), according to information on the company’s website. The company serves the agriculture, personal care, pulp and paper, asphalt, graphic arts, lubricants, mining, oilfield, water treatment, and paints and coatings markets.
