Fortron Industries.

Fortron Industries, a joint venture between Hoechst Celanese and Kureha Chemical, will begin construction by August 1992 of a 3,600 metric ton polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) polymer plant adjacent to a Hoechst Celanese joint venture manufacturing facility near Wilmington, NC. When completed in the fourth quarter of 1993, the plant will produce the first domestic supply of linear molecular-structure PPS polymers. Hoechst Celanese will supply compounding technology and marketing services and Kureha will provide proprietary PPS manufacturing technology. Hoechst will market the PPS throughout North and South America, Europe and the Far East, except Japan.
