CLEVELAND, US: PolyOne Corporation (POL) expects to start production of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) at its existing facility in Pune, India. PolyOne currently produces colour and additive concentrates and engineered polymer solutions at the Pune facility.

Adding TPE production enables the company to support customers in the country even more quickly and with a broader portfolio of domestically manufactured materials.

PolyOne opened a new facility in Pune in 2014, initially focused on the production of colourant and additive concentrates to serve end markets such as transportation, electronics & electrical, healthcare, wire & cable, and packaging. The company expanded manufacturing capability to include speciality engineered materials last year. With the most recent addition of TPE production, PolyOne enables manufacturers to source all of their speciality polymer requirements from a single domestic source.

"This investment at our facility in Pune answers customers' desire for a domestic supplier able to offer expertise in colour, engineered materials and thermoplastic elastomers. We are the only global company to offer all of these domestically produced materials in India. Customers benefit from shorter lead times due to domestic production, and also from our global network of polymer science expertise," said Craig Nikrant, president, speciality engineered materials, PolyOne.

"We're very excited to build upon our momentum in India with domestic production of TPEs. At the same time, we're also increasing our technology and sales personnel to maximize the innovation, collaboration and service we provide to our valued customers," added Vikas Vij, managing director, India, at PolyOne.
