ExxonMobil begins major plant expansion
ExxonMobil Chemical Company has broken ground on a 100,000 square foot building to house a new production unit at the company’s oriented polypropylene (OPP) manufacturing plant in Shawnee, OK.
The expansion creates 50 new jobs for the area, and increases annual capacity at the plant by 35 percent.
“This project marks the largest expansion for the ExxonMobil Chemical’s Shawnee plant in more than 10 years, and is a tremendous growth opportunity for the Shawnee area,” says Kevin Donovan, plant manager.
The new line will start up in 2002, and full capacity is planned for the following year. ExxonMobil is a supplier of OPP films for flexible packaging and labeling applications, and has seven plants in Europe and North America.
