PLAINFIELD, CONN. (July 25, 12:50 p.m. ET) — Atlantic Coast Polymers Inc., a maker of polymers used in water treatment, has opened a new production plant in Lockhart, Texas.
The new plant is expected to create as many as 25 new jobs. ACP is based in Austin, Texas, but its current manufacturing site is in Plainfield, Conn.
In a July 9 news release, officials with ACP and local economic development offices said the new plant was the result of favorable economic conditions in central Texas for industries such as oil and gas and wastewater treatment.
ACP's products include cationic polymer powders used in sludge treatment at wastewater plants. The firm sells exclusively to industrial and municipal water and wastewater treatment plants.
