EXTON, Pa. -- The Hydrocarbon Specialty Chemical (HSC) division of Cray Valley has obtained approval from parent company Total to construct a new manufacturing facility in Beaumont, Texas to produce hydrogenated tackifying resins. These resins will be based on a new, proprietary base resin. The initial phase of the project will have 20 kilotons capacity and is expected to be online in the fourth quarter of 2012. A second 20-kiloton capacity expansion will follow.

"This significant investment demonstrates Total's commitment to grow its presence in hydrocarbon specialty chemicals," said Charles-Henri Robert, HSC president. "This, along with the recent investment to increase Poly bd® resin capacity 40 percent at our Channelview, Texas plant, establishes a firm platform for HSC's future growth."
