About AdvanSix in Hopewell.
The AdvanSix Hopewell facility is one of the world’s largest single-site producers of caprolactam, the primary feedstock in the production of nylon fiber used in carpet fibers, plastics, and films, as well as ammonium sulfate fertilizers and a wide range of chemical intermediates.
The labor agreement for our Hopewell South unions, which represent approximately half of the employees at our Hopewell facility, expires on April 6, 2023, with negotiations to reach a new contract beginning on March 23, 2023. We’re looking forward to working together with our unions to secure a new contract that is fair and competitive in the market and equitable for our hourly workforce, while ensuring safe, stable and sustainable operations throughout the process.
