This article reports that Kentucky-based engineering polymers maker Ticona GmbH is planning two manufacturing plants in China, one for making long-fiber-reinforced (LFR) thermoplastics and another for ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMW). Company officials said that they plan to open a 44 million-pound UHMW PE plant in early 2008 and a separate, 4.4 million-pound compounding operation for making LFR plastics, in the third quarter of 2007. Ticona plans to put both operations in China, but will not make a final decision on the location for either one for another month, according to President Lyndon Cole.
