The City of Orange would like to welcome Lion Elastomers at the former Firestone site, located at 5713 FM 1006.
Lion Elastomers previously announced the purchase of an Orange, Texas production site owned and operated by Firestone Polymers. The plant manufactures polybutadiene and styrene-butadiene copolymers, produced under the Stereon™, Diene™, and Duradene™ trade names. These products are complementary to Lion’s current portfolio and will further strengthen Lion’s ability to support the synthetic rubber industry.
This purchase marks Lion’s second strategic acquisition in less than five years and is in line with Lion’s initiative to expand its business and provide greater value enhancement to its customers.
