Fluor to Expand Milliken’s Chemical Plant

Fluor is responsible for undertaking engineering, procurement and construction work for expansion of Milliken’s chemical plant at the Allen Plant site in Blacksburg, South Carolina.

Juan G. Hernandez, President of Fluor’s Life Sciences & Advanced Manufacturing, said, “Fluor will leverage its integrated solutions portfolio and local project execution capabilities to design and construct the facility which will have significant positive impact on the state.”

The new chemicals facility will produce Milliken’s proprietary specialty chemicals used in a wide range of industries including food, cosmetics, office supplies and storage products. The project scope includes a new process manufacturing plant, utilities, warehouse and tank farm adjacent to Milliken’s existing operations.

Flour’s Greenville project team will work closely with Milliken’s process engineers as the plant will leverage design and experience from previous expansions and improvements while incorporating numerous advancements.
