Eastman Chemical celebrated the success of its breakthrough product, Tritan copolyster, by inviting community leaders and elected officials to tour the new Tritan plant in Kingsport, Tenn. "How often do you come up with a new product like this? It shows that we're still innovating, we're still looking for green solutions to what the people want, what our customers want," said Eastman President and CEO Jim Rogers. The product surpassed expectations, posting record sales and rising demand. If demand increases as projected, Eastman will have to expand its monomer plant, which could result in more jobs.
