Huntsman Textile Effects is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its primary manufacturing facility in the Americas. The plant in Atotonilquillo, Mexico, is one of Singapore-based Huntsman’s global centers producing dyes and chemicals for customers in the Americas and around the world.

The plant is ISO 9001 certified and has manufactured a range of innovative dye and chemicals in the past 50 years. These include Lanaset®, Terasil®, Teratop® and Eriofast® dyes for apparel, automotive and active wear, and UV-Fast®, Ultratex® and Sapamine® chemicals for sun protection, whitening and softening effects for markets including automotive, apparel and home textiles.

Through continuous investment and technology improvements of more than $50 million since 2010, the Atoto facility uses state-of-the-art manufacturing and effluent treatment processes to drive a more sustainable textile industry, says Paul Hulme, company president. Atoto’s ongoing investment will include an additional $5 million in the next 12–15 months to expand its product portfolio to meet growing demand in polyester active wear and the automotive market.
