Abstract: Croda began work on its new site in Chocques, France, aimed to increase capacity and sustainability.

Croda broke ground in Chocques, France, with a ceremony for its newest manufacturing site. The focus of the investment is a new alkoxylation production facility that will increase capacity at the site by 20%.

At the event, the company's new utilities infrastructure officially opened as well, allowing the Chocques site to improve efficiency, reliability and sustainability performance.

“It’s great to ... mark the launch of the construction phase of this major investment at our Chocques site," said Steve Foots, CEO of Croda. "This significant increase in production capacity is a strategic investment to ensure that the site can continue to play its role in supporting our global business," 

The new site is expected to be fully operational in early 2017.
