“These expansions represent a significant step in the execution of our 2016 growth ambition,” said Solvay Novecare president Emmanuel Butstraen. “They enhance our leadership position and will support the growth plans of our customers and their innovation needs.”
The expanded Vernon, TX derivatized guar facility will serve Solvay’s customers in the North American oil and gas market. The increased capacity at Solvay’s Zhangjiagang (Jiangsu province), China site will help its home and personal care customers meet growing regional demand for high-end hair care products. With a third facility in Melle, France, Solvay says it is the only guar supplier with production in North America, Europe and Asia.
