Modern Dispersions has successfully commenced operations for the initial phase of an extensive manufacturing expansion at its newly established 168-acre facility in Fitzgerald, Georgia. This strategic move is designed to augment the company's masterbatch production capacity by an impressive 100 million lb/yr. Situated conveniently across the street from the existing 400 million lb/yr plant, the new facility marks a significant milestone in Modern Dispersions' growth trajectory.

As part of this expansion initiative, the company is currently engaged in the construction of the second phase, which is set to include an additional 100 million lb/yr of production capacity. This phase is expected to be operational by the year 2026, further solidifying Modern Dispersions' position as a key player in the industry.

The primary focus of this capacity expansion is geared towards meeting the demands of the North American market. Modern Dispersions is strategically responding to the robust growth observed in injection molding and extrusion applications across various sectors, including automotive, electronics packaging, and construction. Notably, the expansion is particularly pertinent to key end-use applications such as pipe manufacturing, as well as the production of wire and cable.

To support this ambitious endeavor, Modern Dispersions has made a multimillion-dollar investment in cutting-edge compounding equipment, ancillary machinery, and other crucial elements of infrastructure. This commitment underscores the company's dedication to staying at the forefront of technological advancements in the masterbatch manufacturing domain.

The scope of the project goes beyond the manufacturing facility itself. Modern Dispersions has implemented a comprehensive plan that includes significant transportation enhancements. One notable feature of this plan is the installation of a new rail storage and switch yard, specifically designed to accommodate up to 200 rail cars. This move aligns with the company's vision of creating an integrated and efficient supply chain, ensuring seamless transportation logistics to and from the expanded facility.

Modern Dispersions' investment in state-of-the-art compounding equipment signifies a commitment to maintaining high-quality standards in its masterbatch production. The incorporation of cutting-edge technology not only enhances the efficiency of the manufacturing process but also allows the company to offer innovative solutions to its diverse customer base.

Beyond the quantitative aspects of capacity expansion, Modern Dispersions is cognizant of the need for sustainable and environmentally conscious practices. The new facility is designed with a focus on minimizing its ecological footprint. By incorporating eco-friendly measures into its operations, the company aims to align its growth with environmental stewardship principles.
