Total Petrochemicals USA Inc (TPI) combined its Polyethylene and Polypropylene Business Units into a new Polyolefins Business Unit effective January 1, 2008.

“Operating these two key businesses under one banner gives us greater flexibility in meeting the market needs,” said Total Petrochemicals USA President and CEO Bernard Claude.

“Combining our polypropylene and polyethylene operations into a single Polyolefins Business Unit more closely aligns us with Total Petrochemicals international business.”

Bill Campbell, currently TPI's vice president of Polyethylene, will become TPI's vice president of Polyolefins.

Scott McEwen, currently vice president of Polypropylene, will become executive vice president and joint representative director of Samsung Total Petrochemicals Co. Ltd., effective February 1, 2008.

TPI owns and operates a 900 million pound per year high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plant in Bayport, Texas. HDPE is typically sold in pellet form and is a plastic used in everyday items such as milk bottles, detergent containers, grocery sacks, crates, automotive fuel tanks, pipe, crates, totes, garbage bags, panels, and bottles.

TPI owns and operates a 2.35 billion pound per year polypropylene facility in La Porte, Texas, which is the world's largest polypropylene facility.

Polypropylene is a plastic used in food packaging, tapes, carpet yarns, absorbent products, small appliances, outdoor furniture, and toys.
