Solutia: We Sell our Products on Every Continent

Exports from Solutia Inc.'s plant in the Indian Orchard section of Springfield has won the attention of the Massachusetts Alliance for International Business.

The organization, a foundation created by Associated Industries of Massachusetts to help businesses benefit from global commerce, gave Solutia one of three International Trade Achievement Awards this week.

Solutia is the world's largest producer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers for laminated glass, which it sells under the Saflex name.

Jay B. Nesbitt, plant manager, said that about 70 percent of the production in the Indian Orchard plant is exported. It also exports PVB resin and film to Solutia plants in Mexico, Brazil and China.

"We sell our products on every continent," he said.

Nearly all of the plant's production is used in automotive glass.

"We like to say we as a company do half of the windshields in the world," Nesbitt said.

He said the entire market for PVB products is growing.
