Huntsman Corporation (NYSE:HUN) today announced that its Performance Products division has completed an expansion of specialty amines manufacturing capacity at its facility in Petfurdo, Hungary. This expansion increases its existing polyurethane catalyst production capacity globally by over 20 percent.

These specialty products are used to make everyday items such as foam automobile seats, mattresses, and spray insulation.

“This capacity expansion leverages our strong manufacturing and technology base, which is already one of the widest in- house specialty amines manufacturing capabilities in the industry,” said Gwen Fonck, Vice President, Huntsman Performance Products, Europe, Middle East & Africa. “We have consistently improved our capability and extended the product range manufactured at our Petfurdo location over the last ten years. This new capacity demonstrates our commitment to our customers in the growing segments of the polyurethane industry,” she added.
