Mexican conglomerate to buy Coast plant

BAY ST. LOUIS — DAK Americas LLC has agreed to buy Wellman Inc.’s PET plastics plant in Bay St. Louis for $185 million.

DAK Americas is a unit of Mexican conglomerate Alfa SAB. The company announced the deal June 16, according to the Mississippi Press. The purchase amount includes a cash payment and assumption of some liabilities.

The 165-worker plant in the Port Bienville Industrial Park has the capacity to make 430,000 tons a year of PET, a plastic resin used to make drink bottles and other items.

The deal is expected to close in the second half of 2011, pending regulatory approval, said DAK, based in Charlotte, N.C.

    You know, it is hard to tell any more… but serveral years ago I vowed to try and buy American made products, made by Americans, and owned by Americans. I know it is hard to know any more who ownes a company and who they sale to, but I believe Americans should support Americans as much as we can.
