Kuraray is scheduled to break ground tomorrow on a new plant in La Porte, Texas. The plant will manufacture Poval resins.

“Kuraray felt this was an ideal place to establish a beachhead for further expansions,” says George Avdey, president and CEO of Kuraray America Inc.

“Kuraray is one of the innovators and pioneers of the production of PVOH,” adds Bob Chvala, vice president and general manager of the Poval Division.
