Chevron Oronite announces the completion of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of an expansion project at its Singapore Manufacturing Plant (SMP), known as the ‘Future Expansion Project’. In Phase 1, which started construction in February 2020, facilities and supporting infrastructure were added to manufacture two new detergent components. In Phase 2, which was finished in July 2022, the blending facility was upgraded and expanded to allow more complex additive packages to be blended and supplied from the plant.
Eugene Ng, general manager of Sales and Marketing, the Asia Pacific Region, reflected that, “With this new investment and our network of manufacturing plants in Asia, we are delivering more products directly to our customers in the region. This helps to enhance the supply reliability of our products which is critical in the current dynamic environment that is filled with many uncertainties and disruptions.”
Colleen Cervantes, president of Chevron Chemicals, concluded that, “The expansion work in Singapore is an important addition to our manufacturing capabilities in Asia. It demonstrates our continued commitment to invest in markets where we see the potential for growth and an opportunity to provide better value to customers.”
