Jacksonville, FL (December 15, 2017) Yet another industry leader has opened offices in City Council District 11. Kraton, a leading manufacturer of synthetic block copolymers, held a ribbon cutting recently to mark its move to 9000 Southside Blvd. in the Gramercy Woods office park, formerly know as the Bank of America campus.

City Council Member Danny Becton was joined by Kraton CEO Kevin Fogarty, who flew in from corporate headquarters in Houston, to take part in the ceremony.

Last year, Kraton purchased the Jacksonville-based Arizona Holdings Corporation for $1.37 billion. About 150 employees had worked at 4600 Touchton Road in the Deerwood North Building. Kraton does no manufacturing in Jacksonville. This office houses it operations, commercial, finance, HR, procurement and IT functions.

Kraton manufactures adhesives, coatings, inks, sealants, and products used in the automotive industry. It is a leader in creating innovative products to increase the life and stability of roads
