Cytec Industries Inc. is building a new production unit to manufacture RADCURE™ epoxy and urethane acrylates at the company's Fengxian site production facility near Shanghai, China. The additional capacity is expected to shorten the supply chain process and increase Cytec's ability to respond to customer applications and technology needs in the region. Current plans are for the plant to come on-stream during the first half of 2008.
In addition, the company is nearing completion of the expansion of its production facility for RADCURE UV curing resins in North Augusta, GA. This expansion will significantly increase the capacity of monomer production in the Americas, complementing the company's current production in the U.S., and is expected to gradually come on stream during 2007.
