America's Huntsman Textile Effect, a leading global provider of high quality dyes and chemicals to the textile and related industries, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its primary manufacturing facility in the Americas, it said in a press release. The plant in Atotonilquillo, Mexico is one of Textile Effects' global centers producing dyes and chemicals for customers in the Americas and around the world.

“Huntsman Textile Effects is proud to celebrate this momentous milestone of its Atoto plant, which is the only plant that synthesizes dyes and chemicals in the Americas. Its sophisticated processes, relentless focus on quality, commitment to environmental, health and safety standards and the rich technical expertise of its people have contributed to its capacity expansions,” said Paul Hulme, President of Textile Effects.

Over the past 50 years, the manufacturing facility has built a reputation for excellence in manufacturing a broad range of innovative dye and chemicals. These include Lanaset, Terasil, Teratop, and Eriofast dyes for apparel, automotive and active wear. It also produces UV-Fast, Ultratex and Sapamine chemicals for sun protection, whitening and softening effects for a broad range of end markets including automotive, apparel and home textiles.

“Through continuous investment and technology improvements of more than $50 million since 2010, the Atoto facility uses state-of-the-art manufacturing and effluent treatment processes to drive a more sustainable textile industry,” said Hulme.

Atoto's ongoing investment will include an additional USD5 million in the next 12-15 months to expand its product portfolio to meet growing demand in polyester active wear and automotive in this region.

The Atoto manufacturing facility, supported by chemical formulation centres in the US, Guatemala, Columbia and Brazil, enables Textile Effects to serve customers in the region with greater speed and flexibility. Textile Effects says it has consistently collaborated with partners and other stakeholders to develop innovative and sustainable practices that meet the industry's stringent environmental regulations.
