PMC Biogenix, the leading sustainable producer of specialty fatty amides and high-value biobased products, announces the construction and expansion of its new Armoslip® facility in Gyeongju, South Korea allowing for a production capacity increase of 50%. Construction will begin late 2024 with new supply available by mid-2026.

 

“We are excited to announce plans to build a new facility in Gyeongju. This investment will allow us to significantly increase production capacity to meet growing customer demand for our Armoslip products,” said Debtosh Chakrabarti, President, PMC Group N.A., Inc. Adding, “This project solidifies our commitment as the industry leader, delivering products and solutions to our customers, as well as to the local Gyeongju community. We appreciate the continued support of the Gyeongju, South Korea local government, community, and our customers.”

 

As part of PMC’s ongoing commitment of ensuring long-term sustainability and success of the Biogenix business world-wide, a comprehensive strategic product review of the Memphis facility was conducted resulting in a focus on higher value Fatty Amides and Bisamides (Armoslip® and Kemamide®), Glycerol Esters (Kemester®), Metallic Stearates (Lubrazinc®), and Specialty Esters (Kemester®) and the decision to exit the merchant market for certain commodity bulk fatty acids. This restructuring will enhance operational efficiencies, focus on core strengths, align resources with market demand and bolster PMC’s oleochemical derivatives business.
