As LiquidPower Specialty Products Inc. (LSPI) continues to grow and invest in our business, we are pleased to announce that we are in the process of commissioning a new manufacturing plant which will produce crude and refined product drag reducing agents (DRA). This new flow improver plant will be located next to LSPI’s existing facility in Bryan, Texas, and is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2017.
The new plant provides significant additional capacity to ensure that LSPI can meet the growing global demand for DRA. LSPI chose to add a second, independent facility rather than simply making our original plant larger. Two independent manufacturing facilities on the same campus offer production capacity reliability through redundancy and significant economies of scale. Each facility will maintain its own day to day operational staff, producing ﬂow improver from raw material to finished product. While separate quality control labs are located within each manufacturing plant, the same quality management team will oversee both facilities to ensure consistently high quality standards. Both manufacturing facilities will also be managed under LSPI’s rigorous HSE programs. The new facility will also be supported by LSPI’s robust global supply chain network, providing supply ﬂexibility and agility for delivery.
LSPI’s DRA offering is part of a comprehensive, full-service solution that encompasses industry-leading technology, quality manufacturing, technical support and consulting, reliable supply chain, and injection equipment and field service. The new facility is one of many efforts undertaken by LSPI to ensure that our customers continue to receive best-in-class service.
