MFG Chemical, a global leader in specialty and custom chemical manufacturing, is upgrading its plant in Pasadena, Texas. The company acquired the facility in March 2018, which sits on 24.5 acres.
The acquisition of the Pasadena plant, together with the company’s 3 plants in Northwest Georgia, makes MFG Chemical one of America’s largest consumers of Maleic Anhydride. Improvements include debottlenecking and new capacity additions, including two new reactors, one of which is 20,000 gallons in size.
According to company officials, Pasadena plant improvements are scheduled for completion by the end of the 1st Quarter of 2019, and entail a multi-million dollar investment.

Our significant capital investments in our Pasadena, TX, plant as well as our three other world-class ISO 9001:2015 Certified manufacturing plants in Dalton, GA reflect our ongoing effort to deepen our manufacturing and formulating partnerships with our valued customers.”
