Per­for­mance Ma­te­ri­als plans to in­crease pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity across its in­ter­me­di­ate chem­i­cals and poly­mers port­fo­lio by 10 to 15 per­cent to sup­port the con­tin­ued growth of its cus­tomers.

“The global de­mand for ny­lon 6,6 and our in­ter­me­di­ate chem­i­cals con­tin­ues to grow at 3 to 4 per­cent per year in a range of di­verse ap­pli­ca­tions,” said Phil McDivitt, As­cend’s Pres­i­dent and CEO. “As­cend has cost ef­fec­tive ex­pan­sion op­por­tu­ni­ties that al­low us to bring ad­di­tional ca­pac­ity on­line as the mar­ket needs it.”

As­cend will in­crease ca­pac­ity of adiponi­trile (ADN), hex­am­ethy­lene di­amine (HMD), adipic acid and poly­mers through 2018. As­cend’s unique pro­duc­tion process al­lows for quick ca­pac­ity ad­di­tions with high cap­i­tal ef­fi­ciency and with­out dis­rup­tion to op­er­a­tions.
