Resin Solutions, a portfolio company of Pacific Avenue Capital Partners, recently announced a capacity expansion of its hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene product line, Poly bd™. Slated to come online in 2024, the additional capacity confirms Resin Solutions’ place as a leading global supplier of hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene. According to the company, the expansion also demonstrates a continued commitment to Resin Solutions’ diverse customer base across the adhesives, sealants, aerospace, and defense end-markets.
Joan Braca, CEO of Resin Solutions, explained, “In response to growing industry demand and numerous direct customer requests, we recently approved a significant expansion of production capacity in our Channelview, Texas, Poly bd plant. While we view this expansion as more than sufficient to satisfy the near- to medium-term demand for hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene, we, in tandem with Pacific Avenue Capital Partners, will continue to make the appropriate capital investments required to serve our customers.”
The Poly bd business of Resin Solutions is uniquely situated to serve the liquid polybutadiene market given its production capabilities at its Channelview, Texas, and Ravenna, Italy, plants. Both plants are advantaged with long-term and cost-competitive feedstocks. Resin Solutions also operates a research and development center within its Exton, Pennsylvania, facility that focuses on technical development of the product line to fit future needs.
Resin Solutions, headquartered in Exton, Pennsylvania, serves customers across diverse end-markets, including adhesives and sealants. For more information, visit www.resinsolutions.com.
