August 25, 2011
KBR on Wednesday announced that it was awarded a contract by Zeon Chemicals to provide construction management and construction services for its Nitrile Rubber Plant Expansion project in Pasadena, Texas.
KBR will manage the first phase of Zeon's expansion plan, which will enable the plant to increase production of zetpol hydrogenated nitrile rubber — used in the production of items such as belts, seals, hoses, diaphragms and rolls for the automotive, oil field and roll industries — by 25 percent.
"KBR is committed to providing quality construction services in support of Zeon's endeavor to expand its Texas facility and enable increased production at the plant," said David Zimmerman, President, KBR Services. "I am confident that KBR's contribution will result in successful execution of phase one, and we look forward to continuing our work with them in subsequent phases of the expansion."
