Kordsa plans $50 million Chattanooga expansion, adds 200 jobs
The tire nylon manufacturer Kordsa, which took over part of the former DuPont plant in Hixson nearly a decade ago, announced Tuesday it is investing $50 million to expand nylon production at its Chattanooga plant.
Kordsa Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Kordsa, said the expansion will add 200 more jobs in Chattanooga and increase its capacity to convert its products into tire cord fabric. The Chattanooga facility manufactures Nylon 66 yarn and ships it to North Carolina, where it is converted into tire cord fabric and sold to tire manufacturers across the United States.
