CLEVELAND, US: PolyOne Corporation will open a new polymer distribution warehouse and sales facility on July 1, 2011 in Shanghai, China. This marks the first entry point for PolyOne Distribution into Asia.

“PolyOne Distribution is the market leader in less than truckload thermoplastics distribution in North America and we have a backlog of customer requests to expand our distribution services globally. PolyOne has emerged as a leading supplier of polymer materials, services and solutions in the healthcare industry. Since 2006, our healthcare sales have expanded 95 per cent and now represent over $ 250 million in annualized sales. PolyOne Distribution has led the company’s healthcare expansion and offers the broadest certified healthcare portfolio in the industry,” said Stephen D Newlin, Chairman, President and CEO, PolyOne.

“This new facility will immediately provide value to healthcare device manufacturers and processors in Asia. Asia is a significant market for our global healthcare customers, and they will receive the same superior levels of customer service and selection from our industry-leading network of partners and suppliers that we maintain in the Americas,” said Michael L Rademacher, president, PolyOne Distribution.
