Methanex has relocated two methanol plants from Chile to Geismar. On January 24, 2015, Methanex successfully produced first methanol from its new one million tonne Geismar 1 plant in Louisiana. Methanex's Geismar 2 plant successfully achieved first methanol production on December 27, 2015.
North America is a major world market for methanol and Methanex is a long-term leader in the region. Our new Geismar plants will further enhance our ability to provide a secure and reliable supply of methanol to our long-standing North American customers.
The project to relocate two plants from Chile to Geismar created over 1,500 construction jobs. Methanex has relocated two production facilities from Chile to Geismar and we now have a permanent workforce of over 160 full-time team members at our Geismar site. Methanex is committed to contributing to the development of the local community in Geismar through a variety of social responsibility programs.
