HOUSTON (ICIS)--US-based vinyls producer ?xml:namespace>
CEO Paul Carrico, while answering a question during a third-quarter earnings call, said the company has long sought to be able to secure cost-effective ethylene.
“Our mission is to get about 50% of our volume requirements under a cost-base type of situation,” he said.
“We’ve had quite a few discussions, and it ebbs and flows with how those participants either make sense to us or don’t,” he said.
Carrico said nothing definitive has yet emerged from those discussions.
“We’re willing to make the investment in order to get to the position where we’re trying to target,” he said.
