Neat Resin Conversion Program

Continuing softness in the carpet staple fiber market coupled with continuing strength in the market for nylon 66 pellets has led to a series of four (4) projects to support our client’s strategic marketing positioning. The projects were to convert production capabilities from carpet to nylon 66 pellets to meet the market demand.

Day & Zimmermann provided engineering, procurement, construction, construction management, start-up and commissioning to modify the existing continuous polymerization system, which included the addition of the following new systems; pelletizing, drying, convey, additives, screening, storage and packaging.

With a lot of "outside the box" execution strategies and extreme dedication, the team executed the project safely, within schedule and budget contract targets, with excellent quality at startup. The successful completion of this project was a major contributor to the award of an additional phase of the project.
