INVISTA’s nylon intermediates manufacturing facility in Victoria, Texas, has once again earned STAR status, the highest designation under the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration’s (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). First certified in 2007, this is the third STAR recertification for the site.

“I’m very proud of our employees and their ongoing commitment to safety recognized by this achievement,” said Vince Salvador, INVISTA Victoria site manager. “Earning the VPP STAR facility recertification is a demonstration of their ongoing dedication to compliance and environmental health and safety.”

OSHA awarded the VPP STAR recertification to the Victoria site after a thorough third-party audit as part of the VPP re-certification process. The agency evaluated the site’s safety and health programs, operations performance and safety record.

INVISTA’s Victoria site is currently in the construction phase of a $250 million project to upgrade its manufacturing technology and increase production of adiponitrile (ADN), a key ingredient for nylon 6,6 fibers and plastics.
