13. Formosa Plastics 台塑(美國)

台塑企業於1978年選擇美國做為海外投資的地點,主要著眼於美國具有豐富的天然資源、完善的政經制度及法令、良好的基礎建設及高水準的人力資源。

經過多年的努力,我們先後設立有「台塑美國公司」、「南亞美國公司」、「南亞美洲公司」,並購入「NEUMIN天然氣公司」。擁有多座大型石化原料和二次及三次加工工廠以及天然氣井。

台塑美國公司總部設在新澤西州之Livingston,旗下三個生產廠區,分別位於德州之Point Comfort,路易斯安那州之Baton Rouge以及德拉瓦州之Delaware City。建廠初期係以聚氯乙烯(PVC)粉及其相關工廠為重心。1990年企業毅然投入19億美元,在德州廠區興建上游生產乙烯的烯烴裂解及八座相關石化工廠,並於1994年陸續順利開工生產,獲得了很大的成功。而第二座烯烴裂解以及聚乙烯、聚丙烯擴建工程也已於2002年初完成。至此,台塑美國公司已成為美國地區PVC粉、聚乙烯、聚丙烯以及鹼最主要的生產商之一。完成了石化上下游一貫之作業生產,有效確保原料供應,降低成本,打下了本企業在美國發展的深厚根基。

成立於1979年之南亞塑膠美國公司,擁有位於德州之Wharton廠及Houston廠。Wharton廠起初生產PVC硬質膠布,近年擴建增加A-PET膠布生產線。Houston廠則生產SMC庭院門。

1989年成立的南亞美洲公司,則有位在路易斯安那州Ba t c h e l o r的P VC軟質膠布廠、德州Point Comfort的乙二醇(EG)廠及南卡羅萊納州Lake City製造聚酯粒、聚酯棉、預延伸絲餅及聚酯加工絲等產品之聚酯生產工廠。

近年來,美國頁岩氣的開發技術成熟並量產,已計劃再投資20億美元於德州廠區興建第三座烯烴裂解、丙烷脫氫及下游相關石化工廠,充分掌握美國低瓦斯價的競爭優勢,確保企業之永續經營。
