Corpus Christi Polymers, a polyester joint venture of Indorama Ventures, Alpek, and Far Eastern Investment, is putting construction of its Texas plant on hold. The partners paid $1.1 billion for the facility, then under construction, a little more than a year ago, during the bankruptcy of M&G Chemicals.
