Phase One, to be finished by the end of the third quarter 2002 and to cost approximately $20 million, includes the installation of a new gel-spinning line and additional drawing capacity at Honeywells Colonial Heights, Va., facility.Phase Two, still in the planning stages, involves the construction of a new, state-of-the-art plant. Locations in Europe, Asia and the United States are all being considered.January 2002
