Ineos Styrolution revealed plans to expand the company’s plant in Altamira/Mexico responding to growing demand in the Americas region.

Altamira/Mexico — The copolymer plant produces a variety of ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) and ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) solutions. The expansion will also allow customers to benefit from increased flexibility adapting production to customer demand, the company said, adding that it observes a growing demand for ABS and ASA based solutions in particular in the automotive, the construction, the household and the toys, sports and leisure market segments.

The capacity expansion of 20,000 metric tons will grow the company's overall copolymer production capacity in Altamira to 180,000 metric tons. This increase intended to reduce imports from other regions that were needed to support growth in the Americas region. These import volumes will then be freed up for business growth in other regions. Startup is expected by the first quarter of 2018.
