Our Mansfield plant produces compounds of polypropylene known as thermoplastic polyolefins (TPO).
These TPO compounds are produced in the form of pellets and are used by our customers to manufacture parts for the automobile industry, such as bumper covers, body side moldings, grilles and various interior parts such as dashboards, consoles and air-bag covers.
The plant encompasses about 40 acres and consists of four separate production lines, product storage silos, and warehousing and packaging operations. The plant also houses laboratory facilities for product testing and the development of new compounds and pilot lines for verifying the behavior of our materials in different processes.
Our site contributes to the economy of the community by providing skilled jobs, by purchasing millions of dollars in local goods and services and by paying taxes to support local schools and government services.
Our commitment as a socially responsible company means that we operate our facilities in a manner that protects people and the environment, in keeping with the principles of Sustainable Development. Through our culture of Operational Excellence, LyondellBasell companies are committed to continuous improvement in safety and environmental performance.
