Zeon Chemicals picks KBR for construction of nitrile rubber expansion in Texas
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.
