Invista Closing Texas Manufacturing Unit

Orange, TX, October 9, 2015 -- Invista plans to lay off at least 75 employees at a plant that specializes in a key ingredient for nylon fiber, according to a story in the Beaumont Enterprise.

Invista said it will shut down its adipic acid manufacturing unit.

Lower demand in North America and an increased supply globally led to the decision to close the unit, the firm said, noting the Orange unit is no longer competitive.
