Huntsman Showcases Innovation at Advanced Technology Center in The Woodlands
THE WOODLANDS, Texas - Huntsman’s Advanced Technology Center (HATC) in the Woodlands, Texas, is one of about a dozen of the company’s world-class research and development (R&D) and technology facilities around the globe. On Oct. 25, Huntsman held a Technology Showcase at HATC for elected officials and community influencers.
Attendees participated in behind-the-scenes tours given by Brian Pellon, Vice President of Research & Development at HATC, and received an up-close look at the research, development and innovation taking place at the facility. U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady and Texas State Sen. Brandon Creighton represent the district where HATC is located and were on site for the event. Other community influencers were also in attendance, along with Peter Huntsman, president and CEO of Huntsman Corporation.
More than 300 employees are based at the 17-acre campus, which includes approximately 220,000 square feet of office space, multiple laboratories, machine hall and pilot plant facilities designed to simulate customer applications, as well as a technical library and cafeteria.
“Huntsman's Advanced Technology Center is a shining example of the important and innovative work taking place at our company every day,” Peter Huntsman said. “We are honored to showcase this facility located in The Woodlands, where we develop technologies that improve people’s lives around the globe.”
"It's exciting to have a community partner like Huntsman open up the doors so we can all see the technological innovation happening here," said U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. "As the U.S. House of Representatives prepares to take action on tax reform to help grow the American economy, we need to look no further than our own backyard to see what innovation can be unleashed."
