Our Geismar plants have an annual production capacity of two million metric tons of methanol per year and we employ over 160 full time professionals in Ascension Parish. 

North America is one of the key global methanol markets in the world and Methanex has a long-term leadership position in this market. Our Geismar assets support our ability to supply our long standing North American customers in a reliable manner.   

Our two Geismar plants were relocated from our Chile site, and both plants began producing methanol in 2015. 

An active and involved corporate citizen, Methanex contributes to the social and community development of Geismar and Ascension Parish through a variety of social responsibility investment programs.  Methanex is committed to the principles of Responsible Care® and is an active participant in Geismar mutual aid activities.
