KBR was awarded a contract by Zeon Chemicals to provide construction management and construction services for its
nitrile rubber plant expansion project in Pasadena, Texas.
KBR will manage the first phase of Zeons expansion, which will enable the
plant to increase production of zetpol hydrogenated nitrile
rubber used in the production of items such as belts,
seals, hoses, diaphragms and rolls for the automotive, oil
field and roll industries by 25%.
KBR is committed to providing quality construction services in support of
Zeons endeavor to expand its Texas facility and enable
increased production at the plant, said David Zimmerman,
president of KBR services.
I am confident that KBRs contribution will
result in successful execution of phase one, and we look
forward to continuing our work with them in subsequent phases
of the expansion, he added.
