T2020 Growth

When our company was carved out of Dow Chemical, we entered into a Master Outsourcing Services Agreement, which for the past several years has served us well by reducing start-up risks and allowing the company to focus on key business activities in a cost-effective way.

Through the Trinseo 2020 (T2020) program, we are defining, shaping, and taking control of our work processes, services, and systems that were previously provided by Dow. This is the last step in Trinseo’s journey to a fully mature and independent company. In 2018, we moved forward with the “Build & Transition” phase of T2020, hiring hundreds of talented individuals in business areas including:

  • Procurement
  • Finance
  • EH&S
  • Research & Development
  • Supply Chain
  • Manufacturing & Engineering
  • Public Affairs
  • Information Technology
