Huntsman's Los Angeles Site Named Southern California's Facility of the Year

Huntsman’s Advanced Materials manufacturing site in Los Angeles has been selected as the 2009 Southern California Facility of the Year in the large industry category by the California Water Environment Association (CWEA). The plant, which produces adhesives, syntactics, laminating resins, encapsulants and potting materials, supports customers in the design, fabrication, and assembly of components used in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, power, and general manufacturing industries. Part of a $20 million modernization over the past four years, the facility has advanced production, quality control and process development capabilities. It is AS9100:2004 and ISO 9100:2000 certified.

Among the qualities that led the CWEA Pretreatment, Pollution Prevention and Stormwater subcommittee to choose Huntsman’s Los Angeles site for this prestigious award were its knowledgeable and committed environmental staff, innovative processes, zero discharge of treated wastewater, preventative maintenance efforts to minimize or reuse waste materials, and consistent record of compliance with sewer and stormwater discharge requirements.

An awards presentation ceremony and luncheon is scheduled to be held at the Hilton Long Beach in Long Beach, CA, on March 2 during CWEA’s 37th Annual Pretreatment, Pollution Prevention and Stormwater Training Conference and Exhibition.
