Orion Engineered Carbons is adding production capacity at its facility in Ravenna, Italy, with the construction of a new specialty carbon black line.

The line will enable the company to meet increasing demands for supply of the material in the growing coatings, polymers, printing and specialty applications markets.

“After extensive review and analysis of opportunities, in addition to the ongoing conversion of existing rubber capacity to specialty, we are adding a new line to take advantage of the high demand for specialty carbon blacks and extend our successful penetration of the specialty segment,” said Jack Clem, Orion’s CEO.

“This investment continues Orion’s rapid realignment of our portfolio toward higher value added products.”

Production of the new line is scheduled to begin in Q4 2019.
