HORSHAM, UK: Evonik Oil Additives USA Inc has temporarily shut down its production at the Deer Park, Texas plant due to Tropical Storm Harvey. There has been no damage to Evonik’s assets, utilities, supplies or production capabilities.

The safe and systematic shutdown of Evonik’s Deer Park plant was necessary because of the heavy rainfall and associated nearby flooding. The weather has impacted all modes of transportation to and from the plant, and restrict the mobility of its employees, contractors and service providers. The shutdown of the plant and the transportation disruptions associated with the storm will likely lead to delays of some product shipments.

Evonik’s Deer Park operating personnel are unharmed and advised to stay safe during the storm. Safety of its employees, contractors and service providers is Evonik’s number one priority. Additionally, the company remains committed to do everything possible to maintain operational continuity and minimize service disruptions to its customers.
