And Carbide and Carbon Chemicals Company (CCBX reporting marks) had large operations in South Charleston, Clendenin and Institute, WV, and in Texas City and Seadrift, TX.  They produced a lot of industrial  chemicals including ethylene, Bakelite, butadiene and styrene.

Interesting history on the Union Carbide website and Wikipedia.
