In operation since 1989 in Brazosport, Texas, the home of the largest basic chemical complex in the world, the Freeport site relies on expert teams, dedicated to the production of its Tolonate™ range. With this new production chain, the Freeport site can now offer to its customers the complete range of derivatives owned by Vencorex.

This expansion is following the recent strategy announced by Vencorex to strengthen its worldwide position in the Aliphatic Isocyanates business (HDI, IPDI, Tolonate™ & Easaqua™ grades and new products). The Freeport site is key in the global footprint expansion currently underway. Vencorex foresees this investment adding strategic importance with increased reliability in the zone, with the potential to further support the growth in the Americas where it is committed to in the coming years.

Vencorex strategic ambition is supported by both shareholders: PTTGC and Perstorp.
