MFG Chemical announces plan to upgrade plants in Georgia

By Scott Jenkins |

Fresh off the completion of a multi- million upgrade of its Pasadena, Texas plant, MFG Chemical (Dalton, Ga.; www.mfgchemical.com), a global leader in specialty and custom chemical manufacturing, is announcing another  significant investment to upgrade safety and efficiency of production operations, this time for all three of its Dalton, Ga. manufacturing plants.

 This upgrade, named Project Odyssey, will improve management systems related to process safety and key compliance workflows. It will also increase plant capacity and efficiency to meet  increased demand coming from specialty chemical markets, including agriculture, asphalt, paints & coatings, graphic arts, lubricants, mining, personal care, soap and detergents,  pulp and paper, and water treatment.

Improvements will include new cooling towers, new process control technology,  upgraded reactor piping for improved pressure relief, and new safety instrumented systems.
