Early in 2024, Accoya will begin modified wood product production at a new plant currently under construction in Kingsport, Tn.

The plant, to be known as Accoya USA LLC, is a joint venture between Accsys, the world’s only acetylated wood producer, and Eastman, a global specialty materials company. 

Once operational, the facility will supply the North American market and Accoya’s Netherlands plant will supply the rest of the world. The U.S. reactors are currently being transported from Europe and will arrive in Kingsport this month.
