Ashland recently completed aln expansion for Natrosol hydroxyethylcellulose (HEC) in Nanjing, China, increasing the company’s manufacturing output at the site by nearly 30 percent.

Key markets for HEC include coatings, personal care, oil and gas, construction, and pharmaceuticals.

“This capacity expansion enables us to support our customers’ growing demand for Natrosol HEC,” said Chris Brown, VP and GM, Ashland Coatings.  “Continuing to maximize our current network provides Ashland with a better return on capital versus building a new plant while also strengthening our cost position.”
