“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.
