Oxiteno ups personal care output in the US

- Last updated on GMT

Chemicals company Oxiteno has started to produce specialty chemicals for the Personal Care markets in Pasadena, Texas, as it looks to expand its production capacity.

To produce these specialty chemicals, Oxiteno retrofitted the assets acquired in April, 2012, and in the coming months, new capacity in surfactants will be added to the site to further support Oxiteno's business expansion in the Home & Personal Care, Agrochemicals, Coatings and Oil & Gas markets.

The start-up of the Pasadena site is an important milestone for Oxiteno, as it reaffirms its commitment to the US market and strengthens its position and product portfolio for the NAFTA region.

The Pasadena site will reach capacity of 32,000 tons per year for specialty surfactants in 2013.
