No injuries were reported from a May 5 fire at a nylon 6/6 plant operated by Ascend Performance Materials in Pensacola, Fla.
Officials with Ascend in Houston said on a Twitter post shortly after 11 a.m. on May 5 that the fire occurred "earlier today." They added that the fire was contained by the Escambia County fire team.
"There were no injuries and the community was not at risk at any time," officials said.
No information on the impact of the fire on plant operations was available. Ascend makes nylon 6/6 resins and compounds in Pensacola. The plant had operated under force majeure sales allocations in late 2020 and early 2021 after a November power outage.
Ascend employs 2,600 and operates nine global locations, including five fully integrated manufacturing facilities in the southeastern U.S. and a compounding plant in the Netherlands.
