M&G puts its plant in Texas on sale
The company reportedly made a filing to execute the selling of its Corpus Christi plant and other US assets amid financial problems, following its parent company, the Italian PET producer Mossi & Ghisolfi Group (M&G), as it previously filed for bankruptcy protection in Italy.
The $1 billion plant is reportedly completed by 85% on the back of technical issues resulting in cost overruns. The company missed its start-up deadlines for multiple times in the past as the plant was initially slated to come online in December 2016.
