10/16/2007
SAVANNAH, GA -- Southern States Chemical, a Dulany Industries Company, announces that an agreement has been reached to build a new sulfuric acid production plant in Wilmington, North Carolina. The new location, yet to be announced, will solidify Southern States Chemicals position as the largest industrial producer/supplier of sulfuric acid on the East Coast. The plant is expected to be operational in 2009.

“The decision to build this new state of the art sulfur burning acid plant in Wilmington where we already have two operational plants, centered primarily on our core strength as a reliable, on-purpose supplier to the industrial customer base in our market area,” said Key Compton, President of Southern States Chemical. “This geographic position provides more efficient distribution to our customer base on the East Coast and increases Southern States Chemicals total manufacturing capability in the Southeast to over 1,100 tons of sulfuric acid per day. Particularly in today’s market, this added security of supply will certainly be welcome.”

Dulany Industries, Inc., Southern States Chemicals’ parent company, also has ties to dry and liquid bulk warehousing and terminaling and industrial cleaning and environmental services. Its other subsidiaries are SeaGate Handling, Savannah Bulk Terminal, and Envirovac Industrial Services.
