Huntsman Textile Effects recently expanded the capacity and upgraded the existing facilities of its site at Atoto, Mexico. The major improvements that it has made will help to serve with greater speed and flexibility.

The production of several key specialty intermediate and solvent based dyes has been transferred from Basel, Switzerland to Atoto and is progressing well.

With this in place, Atoto now becomes an integral part of our global manufacturing footprint as it produces some of our key reactive dye products in addition to our comprehensive range of dyes and chemicals. The proximity to where your business is located will result in improved product leadtimes for some of the most critical products which we supply to you.

Several facility improvements have been completed. These include the construction of a new extension to house the solvent based production line as well as the installation of new spray dryers. We have also hired over 40 new associates to strengthen the team at Atoto in the areas of technical and production while at the same time utilizing the Six Sigma approach to boost our process efficiencies.

Environmental, health and safety (EHS) standards remain our utmost priority. Atoto excels in Process Safety Management and has been operating with an impeccable EHS record over the years. Even with ramped up production at the site, the facility continues to operate at stringent global EHS standards.

This ensures that the products we supply to you are always produced in the most responsible manner while preserving their high quality. Additionally, the site maintains an on-site emergency brigade which is well trained and vigilant. As part of giving back to the local community, this brigade is on standby to respond to situations in the community should the need arise.

“The new upgrades at Atoto are crucial as we are ramping up to seize the growth that we foresee in the years ahead,” said Jack Larkins, Commercial Director for North America. Echoing his sentiments was Freddy Vasconcelos, Commercial Director for South America.

“The investment in the Atoto facility is a clear demonstration of our confidence in the continued growth of the market in America and it is a crucial part of our ability to serve our customers with greater speed and flexibility.”
