Texas-based carbon black manufacturer Sid Richardson Carbon and Energy has begun the planning phase for the construction of a new carbon black production facility in Mexico, its first outside of the USA.
“Based on the current demand for carbon black in North America and projections for the next five years alone, we are viewing this venture as a necessary move to serve our customers. We hope to have this new facility producing carbon black in 2017,” said Bill Jones, company president and CEO. Sid Richardson currently has three facilities in the USA, two in Texas and one in Louisianna.
