Tiarco Chemical announced the ongoing expansion of its Dalton Chemical Plant. The project is a strategic investment, which will further ensure the company’s ability to meet future industry demand and commitment to serving its key markets, the company said.
The Tiarco Chemical Plant is located on the Parents Corporate Campus in Dalton, Ga., U.S.A., about 20 miles south of Chattanooga, Tenn.
Tiarco Chemical is a division of Textile Rubber & Chemical Co., Inc., a privately owned, specialty chemical manufacturer serving the latex, grease and lubricant, oil and gas and water treatment industries. The company has sales offices and distribution facilities worldwide.
The Dalton Chemical Plant produces a variety of component chemistry used in the manufacture of lubricants, latex articles and for water treatment. Tiarco Chemical also serves the growing contract and toll manufacturing market.
“With a robust pipeline of new chemistries, the expansion will provide a flexible manufacturing platform to meet our valued customer’s future requirements,” said Kevin Nolan, vice president and general manager of Tiarco Chemical.
“The expansion of Tiarco’s Dalton site will allow us to maintain our excellent safety and environmental standards for both surrounding community. Also, the increased footprint will provide space for future expansions,” said Chris James, director of operations at the Dalton Chemical Plant.
Construction of the new unit began in the first quarter of 2017 and will be fully operational by the second quarter of 2018. The expansion will add approximately 40% to the sites’ operational and quality control footprint.
