Chemours to close its titanium dioxide plant in Taiwan

The Kuan Yin site will stop producing dry titanium dioxide pigment on August 1, 2023, and decommissioning will begin immediately

  • By ICN Bureau | July 31, 2023
The Company today announced the decision to close its Kuan Yin manufacturing facility in Taiwan. The decision comes as part of a comprehensive strategy to improve the earnings quality of TT – producers of the popular Ti-Pure brand – by optimizing its manufacturing circuit.
 
“Plant closures are incredibly difficult because of the impact on talented and hard-working people like our Kuan Yin colleagues who have been valued members of our company, as well as their families and the community. We are working closely with local leaders to help with this transition,” said Denise Dignam, President of Chemours Titanium Technologies. “Moving forward, Chemours remains committed to delivering excellent service to our customers and continuing to lead the industry in innovation and sustainability.”
 
The Kuan Yin site will stop producing dry titanium dioxide pigment on August 1, 2023, and decommissioning will begin immediately. Chemours sales and technical service teams will work closely with affected customers to maintain uninterrupted supply. The Company expects there will be no impact on product or service quality and no supply interruption during this transition.
