The trial court entered judgment in favor of the appellee, a chemical company, on the basis of the statutes of repose. The appellee did not establish its right to the protections of the statutes of repose. The appellee did not owe a duty to keep the plant in a safe condition or to warn those present at the plant of dangerous conditions on the premises, but it did owe a duty to be non-negligent in its engineering and design of an acid addition machine. The trial court's take-nothing judgment is reversed and remanded.
