Aerosol propellants and specialty gases provider Diversified CPC International (DCPC) is to construct a new multi-million dollar manufacturing and distribution facility at the Iron Horse Terminals in Beaumont, Texas.

Phase one of the site is expected to be operational in the third quarter of this year, and it will be the company’s second major US production and distribution facility, with the other located in Channahon, Illinois.

The company also has regional facilities located in New Jersey, Florida, Mississippi, and California.

“DCPC’s investment in the new Beaumont Texas facility will allow us to meet growing customer demand for innovative new products and supply chain efficiency,” said William Auriemma, President and CEO.

“This investment significantly strengthens our commitment to our customers and the industries we serve.”

Iron Horse Terminals is a shared infrastructure, heavy industrial development located on 405 acres just outside of the Beaumont city limits.

The property is located 30 miles from Mont Belvieu, the largest natural gas liquids (NGL) energy hub of America.

The site is served by the Union Pacific and BNSF Railways, as well as 18 regional and national pipelines which provide a reliable supply of raw materials and distribution outlets for refined products.

“As a fully integrated site, the Iron Horse Terminals Development area is a perfect location for our new facility,” said Vice-President of Operations, Bill Frauenheim.

“We appreciate the working relationship that has been established with Iron Horse Terminals, and we look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership in the years to come.”
