This article states that U.S.-based Velsicol Chemical Corporation and China's Wuhan Youji Industries will form a joint venture to produce and market benzoate esters and polymeric plasticisers in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Velsicol is the majority partner in the joint venture with Wuhan Youji, which is a company backward integrated in key raw materials. The plasticisers unit will be built on an existing site owned by Wuhan and so will benefit from the existing infrastructure. Velsicol currently manufactures the Benzoflex brand of benzoate esters and Admex polymeric plasticizers at facilities in Chestertown, Memphis, Chattanooga in Tennessee, and Kohtla-Hirve in Estonia.
