Trinseo Graded “Outstanding” Two Quarters in a Row in Supplier Performance Report

Jabil Green Point recognized the Company’s plastic resins used in consumer electronics market

HONG KONG - Thursday, May 31, 2018

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced that it has been graded “Outstanding” by Jabil Green Point (JGP) in its Supplier Performance Report.

JGP, one of the biggest contract manufacturers in the world, is located in the United States of America. The company works with many well-known global brand owners in consumer electronics products and provides manufacturing services to them. Trinseo has been working very closely with its customer JGP in the Asia Pacific region, supplying a wide range of plastic resins such as EMERGE™ polycarbonate compound, EMERGE™ polycarbonate and ABS blend, to be further processed into plastics parts. These parts are assembled to make the final consumer electronics products that end-users are using on a daily basis.

Trinseo was graded “Outstanding” for the second consecutive quarter in the JGP quarterly Supplier Performance Report for January - March 2018.  In order to achieve “Outstanding” (Grade A), a supplier needs to achieve 91-100 points, graded from different aspects: delivery, quality, service, etc. This is a great recognition of the effort of the Trinseo team and also certainly increases the confidence level of consumer electronics brand owners that Trinseo works with.

Service quality and responsiveness are key enablers for Trinseo to be successful in the marketplace. A key to Trinseo’s success is making short lead-time for color matching possible, along with preparation of small samples for production of large trial quantities. Trinseo has built a great reputation with the most famous and demanding brand owners as well as contract manufacturers.

By bringing together excellent quality, consistency, and great processability, Trinseo’s EMERGE™ Advanced Resins deliver compounds and blends with tailor-made properties needed for a variety of applications. The fast recipe iteration in terms of specific performance and color, the robust quality and its consistency, the technical service, and the technical expertise to support brand owners in the product design stage, all combine together to differentiate Trinseo from its competitors. The continual enhancements of these key capabilities will keep enhancing the Company’s competitiveness.
