McPherson Operations Update

On the evening of February 11, the team at our McPherson, Kansas production facility detected a small leak in a barrel containing a small volume, reactive reagent. While this intermediate is used widely in the production of modified starch polymers, it is considered highly reactive.  Per our safety and environmental protocols, the McPherson Fire Department was called following the detection and were able to quickly suppress the leak. 

Following an inspection by the Fire Department, we are pleased to report that we have resumed operations at our McPherson facility.

We would like to thank the McPherson Fire Department for their prompt response and support throughout the incident.
