Diversified CPC International Completes First Phase of New Beaumont Facility
Diversified CPC International (DCPC), an industry leader in the design, production, and distribution of the highest purity specialty gasses for a variety of industries, has completed the first phase of their new Beaumont, Texas plant. This new facility, which is located at the Iron Horse Terminals, launched a commercial operation in late November 2020. The company has invested $10 million in Phase I of the project.
“The addition of the new Beaumont facility is a key step in strengthening our competitive position and ensuring DCPC has all the resources to fully support our customers,” said Bill Auriemma, DCPC President and CEO. “We have significantly improved our supply chain capabilities for our aerosol, industrial refrigerant, and solvent extraction customers by consolidating several rail trans-loading operations at one location.”
Company officials have shared that Phase II will include the construction of bulk storage and processing capabilities, while Phase III will bring additional manufacturing capacity on-line in the following years.
“Our in-house engineers have incorporated the latest in manufacturing, safety, and environmental control technology into the design of the Beaumont site,” said William Frauenheim III, DCPC Vice President of Operations. “We are proud of the entire project management team and our partners at Ironhorse for working diligently during this challenging time to complete Phase I on schedule.
“This investment is a key part of our DCPC 5-year strategic plan,” said John P. Dowd II, VP of Strategy and Business Development. “In addition to strengthening our industry-leading customer service capabilities, we will enhance our ability to produce innovative new products that help our customers improve product design, plant efficiencies, safety, and environmental footprints.”
The Beaumont operation will be the second major production and distribution facility the company operates along with its Corporate Headquarters in Joliet, Illinois. DCPC also has regional facilities in Illinois, New Jersey, Florida, Mississippi, and California.
