An industrial leader in sustainability has announced plans for a new processing facility in Northwest Ohio.
Trucent Renewable Chemicals (TRC) will invest more than $10 million at the company’s new site in Van Wert, creating at least 21 new jobs.
TRC, a division of Trucent with headquarters in Dexter, Mich., processes vegetable oils into renewable oleo-chemicals which are shipped to customers for a wide variety of applications, including machining fluids, paints, adhesives, plastics, and animal feed. The new facility will allow for increased production of existing products, expansion into new markets, and development of new products.
“Northwest Ohio is the intersection of the agricultural and industrial markets, and that is a key reason we located in this area,” said James Bleyer, TRC Director.
