Old World Industries is selling its chemical business, including the ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol manufacturing facility in Clear Lake, Texas, to Indorama Ventures PCL of Bangkok, Thailand.

The consumer products division of Old World Industries will continue to operate as a privately held corporation out of Northbrook, Ill. All of Old World's consumer product lines, Peak Antifreeze, Peak Motor Oil, Peak Electronics, Peak Wiper Blades, BlueDEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid and heavy-duty coolants Fleet Charge and Final Charge, will continue to be part of Old World with no changes in personnel or structure.
