LyondellBasell To Streamline North America Polypropylene Business
Thursday, June 05, 2008 Following its February 2008 acquisition of Solvay Engineered Polymers, Inc., LyondellBasell has announced plans to consolidate its North American-based polypropylene (PP) compounding production, sales, marketing and technology activities.

The company will close its Sales & Application Development Center in Auburn Hills, Mich. The sales, marketing and technology activities currently conducted at the Auburn Hills site will be relocated to the company's expanded Advanced Polyolefins Business & Development Center in Lansing, Mich.

LyondellBasell will also close its PP compounding facility in Grand Prairie, Texas. Production will be moved to the company's nearby Mansfield, Texas, plant, and to its new plant in Altamira, Mexico, scheduled to come on-stream this year.

Both sites are scheduled to close by the end of this year.

"Our goal is to provide the most effective service to customers and to utilize resources more efficiently by consolidating our polypropylene compounding assets and streamlining business operations," said Steve Dwyer, Divisional Vice President of LyondellBasell's Automotive Americas business.

LyondellBasell Industries is one of the world's largest polymers, petrochemicals and fuels companies. It is the global leader in polyolefins technology, production and marketing; a pioneer in propylene oxide and derivatives; and a significant producer of fuels and refined products, including bio-fuels. Headquartered in The Netherlands, LyondellBasell is privately owned by Access Industries.
