Since the days of our founding, AdvanSix has remained committed to innovation, growth and stability.
The foundational years of AdvanSix established a deep commitment to innovation that pioneered the synthetic nitrogen fertilizer industry and created a culture of step-change growth and operational stability that are still at the core of who we are today. The business constructed plants to meet customer needs for key products and reliable supply, and raced forward on focused product development.
This era saw growing customer demand, thanks in part to new production processes such as caprolactam via rashig technology, ammonium sulfate production and synthetic phenol via a new cumene process. It was a period of constant construction and expansion, specifically at the Chesterfield nylon production facility.
Ongoing innovation led to a decade of expanding capabilities, such as the fiber and polymers lab in Colonial Heights, Virginia. We brought new plants into operation while increasing capacity at others to meet escalating demand in nylon markets for tire cord and carpet fibers.
We introduced more efficient process technologies and developed exciting new products like Anso-Nylo, Aegis® MBM for carpet fibers and Capran® films. At the same time, customers were finding more uses for these products, leading to an era of significant growth not only in production capabilities, but also in the portfolio of product offerings for films and packaging.
The business expanded in all areas, launching new products such as Sulf-N® mid-grade fertilizer, Aegis® resins for wire and cable applications, and EZ-Blox™ anti-skinning agent for paints and coatings. We also invested in an applications lab in Shanghai, a Center of Excellence in Colonial Heights and new pilot lines for accelerated product development.
Honeywell spun off its Resins and Chemicals business into a standalone, publicly-traded company — AdvanSix Inc., which is now a fully integrated manufacturer of nylon 6 resins, chemical intermediates and ammonium sulfate fertilizers.
AdvanSix acquired U.S. Amines, adding the Bucks, Alabama, and Portsmouth, Virginia, production facilities to our portfolio.
Safe, stable and sustainable operations are at the core of what we do and who we are. We take pride in outperforming every day for each other, our stakeholders and our community.
