Momentive Performance Materials Increases Manufacturing Capacity in Texas and Germany

Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (”MPM” or the ”Company”) announced today the official expansion of two production facilities in the United States and Germany. With increasing demand in a variety of industries it serves, the company has added manufacturing capacity to its production assets located in Texas City, Texas, and its Leverkusen, Germany manufacturing facility.

“We have seen growing demand in certain segments ot the global market that has led us to invest in our manufacturing capacity,” said John Dandolph, President of the Silicones & Quartz division at Momentive. “Both the Texas City, Texas location, and Leverkusen, Germany facility are sites that are well positioned to help the company serve the particular growth we are seeing and will ultimately further strengthen our global competitiveness.”

The existing company site in Leverkusen produces a wide range of silicone products, houses a technology center and supports European customers with several application development centers. The expansion at the site allows for manufacturing of specialty silicones and silanes to support the growing demand both regionally and globally. In Texas City, MPM is doubling its current NXT* silane production capacity to meet the rapidly growing demand for low rolling resistance silica tires.
