Plant Leadership

Bryan Johnson

Site Leader

It all starts with Portsmouth. The Portsmouth site joined the AdvanSix portfolio following the company’s acquisition of U.S. Amines. The Portsmouth team develops the world’s highest-quality synthetic Allyl amines, which are used in a variety of diverse end-use applications like water treatment and pharmaceuticals. We are active in our local community advisor panels, industry panels, and environmental organizations. We are also supporters of the United Way. I’m proud to lead safe, stable and sustainable operations at site and work with our tight-knit, hardworking group every day.

CAREERS

Join our team of innovators, collaborators, thinkers and doers, who turn possibilities into solutions every day.
