Tropical Storm Harvey Update #1 – 3:00 pm
THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Huntsman’s first priority is the safety and wellbeing of our employees and contractors, their families and our plant communities. Due to impacts of Tropical Storm Harvey, all Huntsman manufacturing facilities in affected areas in Texas have safely shut down operations. These facilities are located in:
• Chocolate Bayou
• Port Neches
Additionally, Huntsman’s global headquarters and Advanced Technology Center (HATC) in The Woodlands are closed.
Our other Gulf Coast manufacturing sites – in Geismar, Louisiana, and Pensacola, Florida – are operating normally.
We are communicating directly with our customers about their orders and deliveries through our dedicated customer service and commercial contacts.
We continue to monitor conditions closely and will reopen our offices as soon as it is safe for our employees to travel by road. Our production sites will restart as soon as weather permits and we are able to complete engineering safety checks to ensure orderly and safe startups.
