Nova Molecular Technologies, Inc. Sumter production acquisition

On July 1, 2014, Nova Molecular Technologies, Inc. acquired the assets of EMES, LLC. This purchase consists of a production facility and rail yard terminal located in Sumter, South Carolina.

This purchase will allow Nova Molecular Technologies to further develop its high purity solvent offerings to the pharmaceutical and agricultural markets. It also fits well into Nova Molecular Technologies’ strategy to increase its presence in the high purity solvent custom distillation segment. EMES previously offered multiple high purity solvents to the marketplace. One of these solvents, high purity acetonitrile, will remain a major focus going forward and fits the current Nova Molecular solvent portfolio.

The addition of the Sumter site allows Nova Molecular Technologies additional distillation capabilities and the ability to provide better economics to its East Coast customers. Nova Molecular Technologies services will increase as it continues to invest and expand both the Sumter and Pasadena, Texas site in the future.

Nova Molecular Plant Expansion Update

Janesville, Wisconsin – As an update to our November 2012 communication regarding our capacity expansion, in late July, 2013 Nova Molecular purchased the adjacent property to our Bayport facility. In addition to allowing for further future capacity/equipment expansions this site includes additional onsite tank storage.

With the added production capacity the new acquisition will bring, Nova will be poised to support our targeted effort to increase our sales of Nova’s industrial solvents, gas scrubbing products and the custom manufacturing business.

Nova Molecular Technologies, Inc. is a privately owned company located in Pasadena, Texas, with close proximity to the Port of Houston. Nova began operation in 1991 and offers custom manufacturing services to the chemical industry that includes catalytic hydrogenation (batch and semi batch), high pressure reactions, fractional distillation (batch and continuous) and high value solvent recovery. Nova also markets tetrahydrofuran and natural gas scrubbing products as well as a furfural derivative product line of solvents that include 2-methyltetrahydrofuran and tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol.

2013 Nova Molecular Plant Expansion Update

We reported in November of 2012 that the new 60-stage continuous distillation column had been commissioned and put into service and that we were well underway on the installation of our second pressure reactor.  We are now excited to announce that our plant expansion project is complete and fully operational.

The new 3,000 gallon, 650 psig, agitated reactor was commissioned in late December and is now well into its maiden campaign.  Combined with our 2,500 gallon, 1,000 psig, agitated reactor and three 7,500 gallon, 50 psig, agitated reactors we now have over 28,000 gallons of reactor capacity. Our new 60-stage continuous distillation column in addition to upgrades to our existing 60-stage continuous column and our 25-stage batch distillation system, have already improved our manufacturing flexibility and performance.

With the added production capacity we are now in a position to support our targeted effort to increase our sales of Nova’s industrial solvents, gas scrubbing products and the custom manufacturing business

Nova Molecular Plant Expansion Update

Janesville, Wisconsin – As an update to our June 2012 communication regarding our capacity expansion, the new 60-stage continuous distillation column has been commissioned and is fully operational. The new column, along with our other 60-stage continuous column and our 25-stage batch distillation system, not only adds significant capacity but also allows for a variety of distillation scenarios.

The 3,000 gallon, 650 psi, agitated reactor is undergoing the final vessel modifications and the structural steel modifications needed to hold the vessel will be complete by the end of November.

In July, we also transitioned to the new Rockwell Plant PAX computer system used for plant control which will gives us a stable operating platform for years to come.

With the added production capacity the new units will bring, Nova will be poised to support our targeted effort to increase our sales of Nova’s industrial solvents, gas scrubbing products and the custom manufacturing business

Nova Molecular Plant Expansion Update

Janesville, Wisconsin– In April 2012, Nova Molecular announced that plans were underway on a significant expansion to both our distillation and reactor capacity.  At the time of this update, the new 60-stage continuous distillation column has been fabricated and delivered to the site.  The column is scheduled to be lifted in place by the end of June with final structure modifications, piping, instrumentation and packing to continue through July.

The 3,000 gallon, 650 psi, agitated reactor is also on-site with the supporting equipment having a July delivery. Vessel and infrastructure modifications will begin in July along with the installation of a new Rockwell Plant PAX computer system for plant control.

 

Nova Molecular has been at full capacity since the end of 2009.  When the above units are operational by year end 2012, Nova will have doubled the production capacity of the current site which is necessary to support the increase in sales of Nova’s product lines of industrial solvents, gas scrubbing products and the custom manufacturing business.
