Honeywell Set To Boost Spectra® Production

Honeywell, Morris Township, N.J., will invest $20 million to expand production of Spectra® fiber at its manufacturing site in the Richmond, Va., area. The expansion should be completed during the second quarter of 2005. High demand for the fiber from the US military for use in armor-related products spurred the company's investment decision.

"Honeywell is fully dedicated to being the premier supplier of high-performance fibers to the North American armor industry," said Nance K. Dicciani, Ph.D., president and CEO, Honeywell Specialty Materials.

Over the next few years, Honeywell intends to make several additional similar-sized investments to add further capacity.
