MOUNT LAUREL, NJ (December 9, 2020) – PMC Organometallix Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of PMC Group N.A., Inc. is pleased to confirm that, despite challenges presented by the global pandemic, it has embarked on, and will continue with plans to expand capacity for production of organotin intermediates at Axis, AL and for organotin catalysts at Carrollton, KY.
