Auriga Polymers Inc.
Acquired March 2011

Auriga Polymers Inc. operations are in Spartanburg, South Carolina, with the business unit and administrative offices in nearby Charlotte, North Carolina. The plant once belonged to Hoechst AG of Frankfurt, which also once owned Trevira in Germany.

The South Carolina facility produces polyester resins and specialty polymers currently used in bottles, trays, sheets, film and textile applications. Bottles made from Auriga’s resins are used for carbonated soft drinks, water, beer, juice, wine and food. Auriga owns the technology for the Crystal Clear Oxygen Barrier Resin, OxyClear®. Another benefit of acquiring Auriga Polymers included the enhancement of research and development (R&D) capabilities. An advantage from the R&D integration with IVL’s existing facilities, including AlphaPet and StarPet is increased production flexibility. Auriga has 387,000 tonnes of PET capacity.

The facility also produces polyester resins and polyester staple fibers, with a total Polyester fibers capacity of 71,000 tonnes per annum.
