BURR RIDGE, Ill., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- New Star Metals is pleased to announce that the company will change its name to Material Sciences Corporation (MSC). Founded in 2010, New Star Metals added the original Material Sciences Corporation to its growing list of acquisitions in March 2014. MSC joined several other business units as a global supplier of metal products and processing, engineering services and supply chain management to customers in the automotive, construction and consumer products sectors worldwide.

Pat Murley, chief executive officer of New Star Metals since the company's founding, assumes the same role at MSC. Mr. Murley commented, “We have an aggressive growth plan and believe we should go to market as one team - Material Sciences Corporation. When we acquired MSC, we gained access to the people, products and technology of a publicly-traded 64-year-old company.  It didn’t take us long to come to the conclusion that the superior brand recognition of Material Sciences Corporation could be applied effectively to the entire family of New Star Metals companies.”

Michael Noble, chief commercial officer, added by saying, “We have a great team of people at New Star Metals and MSC.  Working under one name underscores our commitment to customer service, innovation, and growth.  Material Sciences Corporation is a time-honored name but with a fresh business culture.”
