Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced today it has launched an updated version of the apiplastic.com website focusing on its footwear and fashion portfolio of products, manufactured at the facility in Mussolente, Italy.
The new website is available in both English and Italian, having been designed with a focus on the U.S. and Italian markets, as Trinseo is keen to expand its role as a materials specialist, beyond the traditional materials provider / client paradigm. User experience has been improved, as the new layout is based on the end segments served in footwear (luxury & lifestyle, athletic, and professional), as well as fashion accessories. Trinseo’s sustainable solutions for the industry are also highlighted, emphasizing the company’s commitment to a more environmentally-friendly future for everybody while continuing to innovate.
Visitors to the website will also have an improved overview of the materials dedicated to each segment, including their technical properties and end applications. Some of the highlights are:
“The redesigned website is just another step that we are taking towards growing our commitment to the fashion and footwear industry,” said Giancarlo Busa, Global Industry Leader, TPE Footwear. “We are proud of our position as a leading materials expert and provider, but that does not mean we will lessen our efforts towards better materials and improved service. We are very proud of our heritage, but the future is what’s most exciting for us.”
The facility in Mussolente, a trusted supplier for the footwear industry for more than six decades, was acquired by Trinseo in 2017 expanding the breadth of products available for the industry. The factory is positioned at the heart of an area with a rich background of providing materials to the footwear and clothing industries, as well as close to the commercial hub of Venice, nestled in the hills of northern Italy, close to the Dolomite Mountains. The Mussolente plant benefited from this wealth of knowledge and developed a strong history of innovation, such as thermoplastic materials used for ski boots.
