INVISTA plans to invest significant capital in its Texas facilities during the next six years and will expand its employment base to support various initiatives and expected demand for the chemical intermediates it produces in Texas.

INVISTA currently employs about 2,000 INVISTA employees and contractors in Texas and operates manufacturing facilities at Victoria, La Porte, and Orange.

The company also has two offices in Houston, which house engineering; project management; environmental, health, and safety; and other staff functions.

The capital investments planned for INVISTA's Texas sites include safety and environmental projects, as well as production efficiencies and infrastructure renewal.

These investments will require an expanded employment base, including the immediate addition of more than 100 new employees – including engineers from diverse fields, as well as additional maintenance and production technicians.

“We have initiated the hiring process to fill more than 100 roles at our Houston offices and at our Victoria, Orange, and La Porte manufacturing facilities,” said Jeff Silliman, INVISTA's global Intermediates human resources director.

The positions for which INVISTA is currently hiring include:

• Project Engineers
• Project Estimators
• Project Schedulers
• Chemical Engineers
• Mechanical Engineers
• Electrical Engineers
• Environmental Engineers/Professionals
• Civil Engineers
• Reliability Engineers
• Instrument and Controls Engineers
• Maintenance and Production Technicians

As a global company, INVISTA creates value for our customers through advantaged intermediate chemicals that are manufactured in Texas and that service the nylon, polyurethanes and a variety of other industries,” said Dave Dotson, senior vice president of operations for INVISTA.

“INVISTA's Texas assets are critical to the long-term success of our global operations. These investments and the resulting expansion of our employment base in Texas are a testament to INVISTA's long-term commitment to our intermediates business and future growth and profitability.”
