BEAUMONT, Texas — Diversified CPC International (DCPC) has announced plans to construct a new multi-million dollar manufacturing and distribution facility at the Iron Horse Terminals in Beaumont, Texas. Phase one of the site is expected to be operational in the third quarter of this year. It will be the company’s second major United States production and distribution facility, with the other located in Channahon, Illinois. The company also has regional facilities located in New Jersey, Florida, Mississippi, and California.
“Diversified CPC International’s investment in the new Beaumont, Texas, facility will allow us to meet growing customer demand for innovative new products and supply chain efficiency,” said William Auriemma, president and CEO. “This investment significantly strengthens our commitment to our customers and the industries we serve.”
Iron Horse Terminals is a shared infrastructure, heavy industrial development located on 405 acres just outside of the Beaumont, Texas, city limits. The property is located 30 miles from Mont Belvieu, a large American natural gas liquids (NGL) energy hub. The site is served by the Union Pacific and BNSF Railways, as well as 18 regional and national pipelines, which provide a reliable supply of raw materials and distribution outlets for refined products.
“As a fully integrated site, the Iron Horse Terminals Development area is a perfect location for our new facility,” stated vice president of operations, Bill Frauenheim. “We appreciate the working relationship that has been established with Iron Horse Terminals, and we look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership in the years to come.”
“We are extremely excited that this investment project will create dozens of construction jobs and provide employment to over 30 full-time staff,” said Auriemma. “Most importantly, it enhances DCPC’s ability to deliver the “Power of Purity” that helps our customers to efficiently produce products that are safer and more environmentally friendly for wide variety of applications.”
