Shanghai, China — Invista said it has broken ground on new hexamethylene diamine and nylon 6,6 polymer plants at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park  in China.

The company said the facilities mark a key milestone in its plans for integrated nylon 6,6 facilities in the China market.

“China is one of the most important regions for our growth strategy,” said Jeff Gentry, Invista’s chairman and CEO. 

“We have seen significant growth in the region in recent years, and we plan to continue to bring our latest innovative technologies here. The theme of our groundbreaking event-Growing Together: a New Era of Nylon 6,6—reflects the fact that we are working closely with our customers to build the local nylon and polyurethane markets.”

The 215,000-ton HMD plant and the 150,000-ton polymer plant are expected to start up in 2015.
