With a goal of serving global customers with application-back solutions, INVISTA Engineering Polymers is now operating world-scale compounding units at its Chattanooga manufacturing site. The addition of the new, 22,000-ton capacity allows the business to further deliver on its commitment to consistently provide customers—regardless of geographic location—with application solutions made from its reinforced engineered polymers sold under the TORZEN brand.

“We established our business around the idea of bringing solutions to our customers’ global needs through a robust, yet simplified reinforced polyamide product portfolio – and the addition of this latest and greatest compounding technology is our most recent proof point,” said Richard Hill, global commercial director, INVISTA Engineering Polymers. “Our ability to provide consistent, high quality grade engineered polymers anywhere in the world is quickly adding value to our customers’ businesses.”

Consistency and replication are two key focal points for the business. By building the compounding asset in North America, INVISTA now manufactures product to specification for multiple regions of the world, which helps meet multi-region OEM and automotive suppliers’ needs. INVISTA employed the latest turnkey compounding technology from Coperion and had successful startup in 2013.

“The ability to solve similar problems in various parts of the world is proving to be advantageous,” added Hill. “To be able to do it with the state-of-the-art technology is that much better for our customers.”

With INVISTA’s technical leaders in each major region of the world, the company’s engineered polymers are designed to work well in customers’ processes regardless of location.

The North American compounding asset is the second compounding investment by INVISTA. In December 2012, the company announced the acquisition of a compounding and recycling manufacturing facility in Born, the Netherlands.

INVISTA’s business model will also continue to support its established global network of contract manufacturers.
