“This capital infusion will not only enable us to grow and solidify our position as a leader in the global PET market, but will also allow us to take advantage of market opportunities as they arise,” Marco Ghisolfi, CEO at M&G Chemicals said.

M&G Chemicals has several large expansion projects underway, including construction of the world’s largest integrated PTA/PET facility in Texas, USA as well as a project in China to develop and industrialize a green PET supply chain of raw materials from renewable sources.

“M&G Chemicals remains committed to investing in the development of innovative PET products that serve the needs of our customers, both today and in the future,” Ghisolfi added.

“We believe that M&G Chemicals projects are very unique in the polyester space and we look forward to supporting the company in their execution,” TPG said in a statement.

Through its engineering division Chemtex, M&G Chemicals provides technological development, research and engineering services for the construction of plants for customers in the polyester chain, including PET, polyester fibre and PTA production. (AR)
