According to Lingnau, the Company will be opening its fifth innovation and collaboration center this winter in Bay City, Michigan and will initially focus on the Company's engineered thermoset composites product line. "These centers have proven to be an invaluable source of localized expertise and support to our customers," he said. "Similarly, they are critical incubators of new product innovations, such as Polyfort® and Polyflam® compounds, which we expect to start production of in our new polypropylene compounding facility in Saudi Arabia to help our customers address growing demand for durable goods, automotive, as well as electrical and electronics applications in the markets throughout the Middle East, Africa and India.
"In addition to product innovations, visitors to our booth will also learn more the Company's new Be Color!™ trend book - a unique tool in the plastics industry which presents upcoming color and texture trends," Lingnau said.
Finally, at this year's show, A. Schulman will be highlighting select products from its broad technology offering for the packaging, mobility, building & construction, electronics & electrical, agriculture, personal care & hygiene, sports, leisure & home and custom services markets. Similarly, the Company will update visitors on its global Custom Tolling Services and its recently acquired Engineered Composites business which offers A. Schulman customers another platform of materials in addition to the thermoplastics offering.
