Trinseo Sets New Standard for Compounded Plastics Production

BERWYN, Pa. - Monday, August 7, 2017

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), the global materials solution provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, introduced Rapid Response today, an initiative that allows customers of its Consumer Essential Markets (CEM) business segment in North America the ability to have resins produced in an accelerated two week (14-day) time frame.

Typical industry turnaround times can vary from 30-45 days making it difficult for customers who have time-sensitive jobs and need materials quickly.

Trinseo CEM established Rapid Response to accommodate customers in North America that might have unexpected projects, smaller jobs or trial runs and need smaller volumes before full-scale production.  The company’s most popular materials under the CALIBRE™ Polycarbonate Resins and EMERGE™ Advanced Resins brands can be ordered through the program, in addition to custom color matching services.

All Rapid Response compounds are custom blended out of Trinseo’s North America compounding operations. Materials can be sent to either domestic or international locations.  

Rapid Response is another step being taken by Trinseo CEM to differentiate itself in a competitive marketplace with a value-added customer service. Large and global in its infrastructure, yet agile in its service model, CEM supports those customers -- targeting the Medical Devices, Consumer Electronics, Lighting and Electrical industries -- that are looking for intimate support, long-term relationships, and polymer solutions to address their complex challenges
