The first plant ever acquired by IVL overseas, the StarPet Inc., PET facility is located in Asheboro, North Carolina, the U.S.A. After many expansion projects, the plant’s initial annual capacity of 50,000 tonnes has now increased to 252,000 tonnes. We acquired the StarPet PET facility from Tiepet Inc. in 2003. The facility employs Zimmer continuous polymerization and Buhler solid state polycondensation technology.
The StarPet PET facility obtains its PTA from BP and Interquisa Canada L.P., which is transported from their respective PTA facilities.
