MFG Chemical upgrades newly acquired plant

MFG Chemical, a global leader in specialty and custom chemical manufacturing, is upgrading its Pasadena, Texas plant, which the company acquired in March 2018.

The acquisition, which was made to keep up with demand for specialty and custom chemicals from soap and detergents, and other markets, sits on 27 acres. Together with the company’s 3 plants in Northwest Georgia, MFG Chemical has become one of America’s largest consumers of Maleic Anhydride and producers of Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinates (DOSS).

Pasadena plant improvements are scheduled for completion by the end of the 1st Quarter of 2019, and entail a multi-million dollar investment.

Improvements include debottlenecking and new capacity additions, including two new reactors, one of which is 20,000 gallons in size.

Keith Arnold, CEO of MFG Chemical and Member of the SOCMA Board of Governors, commented, “Our significant capital investments in the Pasadena plant, together with our three other world-class ISO 9001:2015 Certified manufacturing plants in Dalton, GA, reflect our ongoing effort to deepen our manufacturing and formulating partnerships with soap & detergents and other valued customers.”
