Celanese Corp. (Dallas, Tex.; www.celanese.com) announced the completion of key debottlenecking projects and product transfers at its global manufacturing facilities to support customer demand and project pipeline growth in the company’s engineered materials business.

“These production debottlenecks, completed in the past 12 months, have increased output by more than 10 percent at each unit, respectively, and demonstrate a commitment and focus on meeting the demands of our global customers for specialty engineered materials,” said Scott Richardson, senior vice president, Celanese engineered materials business. “Combined with new production lines – which will be announced early next week – we are confident in our ability to support the tremendous customer growth that is coming from our project pipeline,” said Richardson.
