AdvanSix’s Chesterfield facility is one of the largest U.S. producers of nylon resin, found in a variety of applications used by people every day, including residential and commercial carpets, engineered plastics and packaging applications.
Chesterfield’s nylon resin is making a difference around the world. Carpet made from nylon provides more comfort and lasts longer than other polymers. Engineered plastics can be found throughout today’s automobiles, making them lighter and improving gas mileage, which in turn helps reduce our dependence on oil. Resin materials in packaging helps food and pharmaceutical manufacturers preserve the quality and integrity of their products. Our customers have been coming to us for nearly 60 years because of our efficiency, consistent high-quality products and cost-competitiveness.
