West Deptford, New Jersey – Coim USA has broken ground on an expansion at its facility in New Jersey. The West Deptford plant produces specialty chemicals for the polyurethane market.
The expansion is designed to expand capacity for the company’s range of low free polyurethane prepolymers. Construction is expected to be complete by the first quarter of 2020, with new production and packaging lines.
Coim said the new lines are required to meet customer demand for polyurethane products. They will increase capacity by up to 2.5 times. The nearby Paulsboro plant will continue to operate.
‘The site was chosen because it offers synergies with existing polyester polyols production,’ the company said. ‘The expansion will include technologies such as low free MDI and PPDI.’
The company added that the US is a ‘growth market of strategic importance’ and that the investment was designed to help it grow its customer-base in North America and beyond.
