"This project will bring additional supply reliability to fulfill the growing demand for specialty aliphatic polyisocyanates in the US market. It shows our commitment to enhancing regional production” said Xavier Fournier, President of Vencorex.
“It also contributes to strengthen Vencorex’ position in the North American market and to better serve our customers with local sourcing of specialty materials” added Jason Williams, Sales Director, North America at Vencorex US, Inc.
The new facility is expected to become operational in the second half of 2023.
