PolyOne to start speciality engineered materials production in India

CLEVELAND, US: PolyOne Corporation is expecting to start local production of speciality engineered materials at its current unit in Pune, India in January 2017. The new capacity allows the company to more broadly support customers and expand their speed to market through PolyOne's expansive portfolio of high-performance solutions and services.

Primary production will comprise specialty engineered polymer materials used in high performance applications that have the need for flame retardant properties, high strength and durability, stiffness, chemical resistance, or weatherability. In addition, PolyOne has hired sales and technical resources based in India with expertise in specialty engineered materials to increase speed to market and collaborate with in-country customers.

PolyOne opened a new facility in Pune in 2014 primarily focused on the production of colorant and additives to serve end markets such as transportation, electronics & electrical, healthcare, wire & cable, and packaging. Specialty engineered materials manufacturing capability is currently being installed within the facility, and production trials begin later this year.

"PolyOne continues to build upon our strong reputation in India for collaborating and innovating with our local and multi-national customers," said Craig Nikrant, president, Specialty Engineered Materials, PolyOne.

"India remains a region of growth for manufacturers and consumers, and by enhancing speed to market, it gives our customers a competitive advantage. We're proud to be their materials and service provider as we innovate and grow together for the future," added Vikas Vij, managing director for PolyOne in India.
