Borealis plans to build compounding plant in North Carolina
The officials informed that North Carolina was chosen due to its proximity to the company’s customer base and its business-friendly and supportive environment of the state and county.
Once started up, the new plant will supply automotive OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and their suppliers in North America and will initially produce PP compounds.
The company also operates a PP compounding site in Port Murray, New Jersey, primarily for the wire and cable market. It also established an automotive compounding line at the same location last year with a capacity of 22 million lb/year.
