THE WOODLANDS, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (Chevron Phillips Chemical) today announces that it has finalized the sale to Grand Astor Limited of Chevron Phillips Chemical’s affiliate company Chevron Phillips Chemical (China) Co. Ltd., which owns a polystyrene plant located in Zhangjiagang, China.
“We look forward to working with the buyer to enable a smooth ownership transition for both employees and customers.”
“The polystyrene plant is a productive and valued asset, but as a standalone operation for Chevron Phillips Chemical in China, the company has determined the asset is not a strategic fit,” said Dan Coombs, senior vice president of specialties, aromatics and styrenics for Chevron Phillips Chemical. “We look forward to working with the buyer to enable a smooth ownership transition for both employees and customers.”
Chevron Phillips Chemical will maintain its long, committed presence in China and the Asia region through both local and regional manufacturing as well as its extensive marketing network, which provides value-added products to the region including polyethylene, polypropylene, alpha olefins, specialty chemicals, aromatics, engineering polymers and styrenics.
