AdvanSix reports disruption in operation at Pennsylvania manufacturing site

AdvanSix has experienced a process-based operational disruption at its Frankford, Pennsylvania manufacturing site. As a result, phenol and acetone production at the Frankford facility, as well as production at its Hopewell and Chesterfield, Virginia facilities, have been reduced. There have been no health, safety and environmental issues associated with the event.

“We are keenly focused on the safe return of our operations to target rates and working collaboratively with our customers to mitigate the impact of our reduced output on their operations,” said Erin Kane, president and CEO of AdvanSix.

“We are confident in our action plan at Frankford and our ability to enable a return to planned utilization rates across our integrated value chain by the end of January. We have also taken the opportunity to pull forward planned maintenance work at our Hopewell facility originally scheduled for later in the first quarter.”

The company expects to incur an approximately $18 to $23 million unfavorable impact to pre-tax income in the first quarter of 2024, including the unfavorable impact of fixed cost absorption, lost sales, and incremental cost to purchase replacement product.

The unplanned interruption did not have a material impact on fourth quarter 2023 results.
