AKRON (July 9)—Specialty chemical manufacturer Eliokem Inc. has completed the refurbishing and expansion of its Akron headquarters, manufacturing and technical center, which included adding equipment and research and development laboratories. The North American arm of Villejust, France-based Eliokem S.A.S. began working on the facility in late December 2001, shortly after Littlejohn & Co., a private investment company, bought the specialty chemical business from Goodyear. The new North American technical center will provide research, new product development support and customer service for the paints and coatings, antioxidants, latex and elastomeric modifiers markets in North America and Canada and in the toner industry globally.
