solvay sa (SOLB) Key Developments

Solvay to Expand Peroxides Production to Serve Growing North American Markets

Solvay, plans to expand its production facility in Longview, WA., to meet growing demands from pulp and paper producers in the Pacific Northwest and other industrial markets around the United States. Solvay expects to increase its North American production capacity by about 20%, supported by a multi-million dollar investment in Longview. This investment will help to ensure that Solvay can continue to supply key markets that rely on Solvay to support their own growth projections. The investment will be in two stages. Longview construction is expected to begin later in 2015 and completion of stage one is expected in late 2016. Stage two of the expansion will take place in the near future as market conditions require. Plant employment will remain stable, augmented by contract workers during the construction stages.
