It all starts with Frankford.  AdvanSix Frankford facility is one of North America’s largest producers of phenol, which is sold to customers around the world. This phenol is also shipped to our Hopewell, Virginia, site, where it is used to make caprolactam, the primary feedstock in the production of nylon polymer, which is used in carpet fibers, plastics and films. The Frankford plant also produces other chemical intermediates, including acetone and alpha-methylstyrene, which are ultimately used in a variety of applications including solvents, resins and plastics.

AdvanSix is active in the Frankford community and strives to be a good neighbor each and every day.
