Lucite International Inc. is on track to complete its investment this spring to resume full production of methyl methacrylate at its Beaumont, Texas, facility. It is also progressing with its planned expansion of methacrylic acid production at the same facility.
Memphis-based Lucite is establishing production capacity of 330 million pounds a year of MMA, and 50 million pounds of MAA.
The company will continue to produce MMA at its Memphis facility, giving the company two world-scale MMA plants to serve customers in the Americas.
“As demand strengthens, Lucite is uniquely positioned to support the future growth of our customers,” said Robert Connolly, business director for monomers, in a March 22 news release.
