Vanderbilt to Consolidate Production

Vanderbilt Chemicals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of R.T. Vanderbilt Holding Co. Inc., recently announced plans to consolidate its commercial production of chemicals at a single location—the company’s newly upgraded plant in Murray, Ky. The company will diminish commercial production at its chemicals plant in Bethel, Conn., by the end of 2014 and transfer that displaced volume into the expanded Murray plant. A pilot plant and laboratory in Bethel will continue operations in order to support the chemicals business.

“The decision to consolidate our commercial production in Murray was difficult for all of us,” said Hugh B. Vanderbilt, Jr., chairman and CEO of R.T. Vanderbilt Holding Co. “The manufacturing environment continues to be very competitive, and consolidating our chemical manufacturing assets will enable us to compete more effectively going forward.”
