COIM USA turned the first shovel of dirt on an expansion at its West Deptford, NJ plant on Wednesday. The plant produces specialty chemicals for the polyurethane market and is to expand capacity for its range of Low Free Polyurethane pre-polymers at this facility.
Construction is expected to be completed by first quarter 2020, with new production and packaging lines. The new lines are needed to meet customer demand for polyurethane products and it would increase capacity for the materials by up to 2.5 times by the beginning of 2020. The site was chosen because it offers synergies with existing polyester polyols production. The expansion will include technologies such as low free MDI and PPDI. The firm nearby Paulsboro plant will continue to operate.
