Ashland Completed HEC Production Expansion in China

On December 3, Ashland (ASH) announced that it completed the expansion of Natrosol HEC (hydroxyethylcellulose) in Nanjing, China. The plant expansion caused the site output to increase 30%. The expansion will likely give Ashland an advantage over its cost of production.
