Aerosol propellants producer DCPC to build major facility in Texas
The new facility will be built at the Iron Horse Terminals in Beaumont, Texas, with phase one expected to be operational in the third quarter of this year. The new site will be DCPC’s second major US production and distribution facility, with the other located in Channahon, Illinois. The firm also has regional facilities in New Jersey, Florida, Mississippi, and California.
Iron Horse Terminals is a shared infrastructure, heavy industrial development located on 405 acres just outside Beaumont. The property is located 30 miles from Mont Belvieu, the largest natural gas liquids energy hub of the US. The site is served by the Union Pacific and BNSF Railways, as well as 18 regional and national pipelines that provide a reliable supply of raw materials and distribution outlets for refined products.”
William Auriemma, president and CEO of DCPC, said: “Diversified CPC International’s investment in the new Beaumont Texas facility will allow us to meet growing customer demand for innovative new products and supply chain efficiency. This investment significantly strengthens our commitment to our customers and the industries we serve.”
“As a fully integrated site, the Iron Horse Terminals development area is a perfect location for our new facility,” said Bill Frauenheim, vice-president of operations at DCPC. “We appreciate the working relationship that has been established with Iron Horse Terminals, and we look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership in the years to come.”
Auriemma added: “We are extremely excited that this investment project will create dozens of construction jobs and provide employment to over 30 full-time staff. Most importantly, it enhanced DCPC’s ability to deliver the ‘power of purity’ that helps our customers to efficiently produce products that are safer and more environmentally friendly for a wide variety of applications.”
