Tropical Storm Harvey Update #2 – 5:00 pm
THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Huntsman’s primary concern continues to be for the safety and wellbeing of our employees and contractors, their families and our plant communities. The company has established storm-recovery support for our employees who have been personally affected by the widespread flooding.
Our manufacturing plant in Port Neches, Texas, remains in safe shutdown status.
Our Conroe, Texas, site will resume regular shift schedules tomorrow.
The remaining four Gulf Coast area manufacturing plants in Texas – Dayton, Chocolate Bayou, Freeport and Houston – are assessing status.
Production sites will restart as soon as weather permits and we are able to complete engineering safety checks to ensure orderly and safe startups.
Our manufacturing sites in Geismar, Louisiana, and Pensacola, Florida, are monitoring conditions closely, and continue to operate normally.
Huntsman’s global headquarters and Advanced Technology Center (HATC) in The Woodlands are open, but the company is advising all employees to avoid coming to work until it is safe to travel by road.
We are communicating directly with our customers about their orders and deliveries through our dedicated customer service and commercial contacts.
Please check our website, www.Huntsman.com, for updates.
