After the controlled shutdown due to the landfall of Hurricane Harvey at end of August, Oxea announced the successful restart of operations at its production sites in Bay City and Bishop, Texas, USA.

Monheim am Rhein/Germany — The units are back in operation mode and have started production of specified material. Although the units are not yet back at full capacities, the company was able to repeal Force Majeure for several products. While logistics are still a state-wide challenge, the producer is eager to arrange shipments matching with the customers' needs.

Due to fortunate circumstances the impact of the hurricane and subsequent flooding were less damaging than forecast, and only minor issues have been identified at the site.
