On January 14, 2009, the Dow Chemical Company announced its intention to exit the marketing and sales of UCAR™ Solution Vinyl Resins. This exit includes the shutdown of our only manufacturing facility in Texas City, Texas.
We are currently assessing customer needs to determine the exact timing for the shutdown of the production facility. Regardless of the final production date, the intention is to make final shipments of these materials by October 31, 2009. For further details please contact your local Dow sales representative.
