Diversified CPC International (DCPC) has completed the $10 million Phase I of the company’s new Beaumont, TX plant. The new facility, located at the Iron Horse Terminals, launched a commercial operation in late November 2020.
“The addition of the new Beaumont facility is a key step in strengthening our competitive position and ensuring DCPC has all the resources to fully support our customers,” said Bill Auriemma, DCPC President & CEO. “We have significantly improved our supply chain capabilities for our aerosol, industrial refrigerant and solvent extraction customers by consolidating several rail trans-loading operations at one location.”
Phase II will include the construction of bulk storage and processing capabilities, while Phase III will bring additional manufacturing capacity on-line in the following years, DCPC said.
“Our in-house engineers have incorporated the latest in manufacturing, safety, and environmental control technology into the design of the Beaumont site,” said William Frauenheim III, DCPC’s VP of Operations. “We are proud of the entire project management team and our partners at Ironhorse for working diligently during this challenging time to complete Phase I on schedule.”
The investment is part of DCPC’s 5-year strategic plan and will strengthen service capabilities, enhance product innovation and help customers improve product design, plant efficiencies, safety and environmental footprints, added John P. Dowd II, VP of Strategy & Business Development.
The Beaumont operation will be the second major production and distribution facility DCPC operates along with its corporate headquarters in Joliet, IL. DCPC also has regional facilities in Illinois, New Jersey, Florida, Mississippi and California.
