Since joining INVISTA in January 2011, Robles has served as vice president of operations for INVISTA’s Intermediates business. He played a key role in launching the company’s latest nylon intermediates technology, which involved a $100 million investment to implement the technology in Texas.
“Kevin’s vision and industry knowledge will help further elevate our operational expertise for our customers and the communities in which we operate,” said Jeff Gentry, CEO and chairman of the board, INVISTA. Robles came to INVISTA with more than 20 years of refining and chemical experience with ExxonMobil and Sunoco Inc., where he was vice president of refining excellence.
Robles and INVISTA’s operations team have established a global goal to reduce its energy intensity 20 percent by 2020. To achieve this “20 by 2020” goal, the company will seek to further optimize its current energy practices in addition to making capital investments at its manufacturing facilities that reduce the amount of energy used per ton of product.
“INVISTA’s commitment to using energy efficiently has resulted in the development of many innovative energy-related strategies at our manufacturing locations around the world,” said Robles. “Being good stewards of natural resources is important for the environment, and it’s an integral part of how we create value.” Robles succeed David Dotson, who will transfer to Flint Hills Resources, another Koch company, effective Jan. 1, 2013.
