Charleston Area Alliance Congratulates Kureha on its Grand Opening

On Monday, Kureha PGA LLC opened the doors on its new specialty plastics facility in Belle. It was an event that attracted West Virginia dignitaries such as Sen. Joe Manchin, Rep. Shelley Moore Capito and Acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin. The grand opening was the culimation of a three year journey for the company.

In 2008, Kureha announced its plans for construction inside the DuPont plant’s fence line in Belle. Also that year, the leadership team and engineering staff of Kureha, who were responsible for designing, constructing and operating the $100 million facility, made their professional home in the Charleston Area Alliance’s business incubator at 1116 Smith Street.

The Alliance partnered with the West Virginia Development Office and then-Gov. Joe Manchin to help recruit Kureha to the Kanawha Valley. Kureha is just one example of how the Alliance works to attract new jobs and investments, helps businesses accelerate profitability, launches visionary community and cultural enhancements and develops the talent and resources that promote success and opportunity for all.

The Alliance is proud to have Kureha call the Kanawha Valley home.  We congratulate the company on its grand opening.
