BonaKemi USA recently completed $1.7 million in upgrades to its Pueblo, Colo., plant. Phase one, which included the installation of new process equipment and piping, and the upgrading and expansion of bulk storage capabilities and additional holding tanks, will increase the plant's capacity for BonaKemi's Woodline and DriFast product lines.

Phase two, which began in the first quarter of 2005, includes the installation of a new packaging line as well as further process optimization. These improvements will allow for future product development, including the production of new products in the solvent-based and specialty lines, BonaKemi said.
