Solvay celebrated the groundbreaking of its Greenville, TX, manufacturing footprint expansion that increases the site’s resin mixing capacity to meet the growing needs of commercial and military aerospace composite customers. Local officials joined the site and project management team for the ceremony.

“Greenville TX is a strategic site for Solvay where in recent years we have invested several million dollars in capacity and modernisation resulting in a double-digit employment growth. This new expansion will enable us to further meet growing customer demand for Solvay’s market leading Out-of-Autoclave technologies,” said Tracy Price, Executive Vice-President Global Operations, Solvay Composite Materials.

This expansion will have a positive impact on the local community through the creation of additional jobs at the site and the surrounding Hunt County area,” said Judge John Horn.
