Tyre additive maker makes a leap

MALAYSIAN company, Performance Additives has opened a facility in the US. Located on a 3.5 acre site in Ohio. The facility will manufacture an additive said to allow for more efficient tyres.

Early this year, Performance Additives acquired the DTC (Dithiocarbamate) and TBzTD (Tetrabenzyl
thiuramdisulfide) businesses from Solutia, including a facility in Italy.

Performance Additives was set up in 1999, as part of Behn Meyer, to produce speciality chemicals.(PRA)
