KERR-MCGEE EXPANDS WOOD-TREATING PLANT

 OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Kerr-McGee Chemical Corp. has begun a $700,000 expansion of its Madison, Ill., wood-treating plant. Plans call for construction of a 60-by-100 foot building at the site, which currently produces 1.3 million crosstie equivalents per year.
 Kerr-McGee's patented, state-of-the-art machinery will be installed in the new facility to manufacture RailFast(R), an innovative crosstie system with built-in fastening devices. The steel fastening system is put into place as the crossties are produced. The new facility should begin operation in February.
 The Madison plant employs 54 workers. James Sanders, plant manager, said, "There are no plans for additional employees at this time."
