Plant commissioning underway at Accoya USA

May 2, 2024

In a trading update Accsys has today announced that Accoya USA has begun commissioning on its newly constructed plant in Kingsport, Tennessee (owned 60:40 by Accsys and Eastman Chemical Company in joint venture) in line with the previously announced project plan and budget. The joint venture remains on track to begin commercial operations in mid-2024.

The joint venture is constructing and operating an Accoya wood production plant to serve the North American market. As the US seeks more sustainable building materials, there is a burgeoning market for high performance wood. The plant will replicate the successful design and technology of Accsys Technologies’ production facility in the Netherlands.

Dr Jelena Arsic van Os, CEO Accsys Technologies PLC, commented:
“We are excited to see the commissioning of the Accoya USA plant underway. When on stream this new facility will see our capacity double from 18 months ago. It is a major milestone for Accsys that will bring our production closer to customers and unlocks a significant growth opportunity in our largest potential market.”
