Example Case Studies

Wavteq helps facilitate the largest ever Chinese investment in the USA

This was the largest ever Chinese greenfield manufacturing investment in the USA. The Wavteq team worked with the company and Louisiana Economic Development to help make the project happen. This included setting up and attending meetings for the Secretary of Louisiana with Yuhuang as part of a road show to China organized by Wavteq.

Building a new World-scale methanol unit in Louisiana is Shangdong Yuhuang's first major step in becoming a global player in the petrochemical industry. Louisiana was the right choice for our company to locate our first operation in the USA and we were greatly assisted by Louisiana's Economic Development Department's representatives in China in coming to that decision.
