Hexion lifts VeoVa vinyl ester plant force majeure in Netherlands

COLUMBUS, US: Hexion Inc said that it has successfully restarted production of VeoVa vinyl ester products at its manufacturing facility at Moerdijk, Netherlands, which produces a variety of versatic acid derivatives. As a result, Hexion has lifted its force majeure notice for VeoVa vinyl ester products declared in Oct 2014 due to a supplier outage.

“We are pleased to resume normal production and our highest priority remains reliable operations in support of our customer requirements,” said Egbert Klaassen, global marketing director, versatic acids and derivatives, Hexion.

“During the force majeure, we worked hard to minimize any customer impact by leveraging other global production sites, such as a joint venture facility in Shanxi, China and a smaller VeoVa vinyl ester production unit in Moerdijk. We were able to efficiently optimize our global manufacturing network. The additional manufacturing capabilities that were put in place during the force majeure will improve our operational flexibility going forward and we are now focused on fully restocking our global supply chain,” Klaassen added.
