Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced today the successful start-up of a MAGNUM™ ABS production line at the company’s manufacturing plant at the Zhangjiagang, China site. Customers in Asia Pacific will now have their needs met for MAGNUM™ ABS in the auto, appliance, electronics, lighting and consumer goods markets.
Trinseo’s MAGNUM™ ABS is manufactured by a mass polymerization technology that delivers greater product stability and advanced properties. It can reduce costs for injection molding, sheet & profile extrusion, and self-coloring, while offering long lasting superior aesthetics in the final product.
“Production of MAGNUM™ ABS in China is an important milestone for Trinseo and the Asia Pacific market,” said Tim Stedman, SVP and Business President at Trinseo. “We are delivering on our promise at Trinseo of providing our customers with a differentiated ABS product compared to other competitive resins produced in China today.”
On November 21st, 2017 an official unveiling ceremony will take place at the Zhangjiagang site with local dignitaries, neighbor companies, business management and employees.
This investment further reinforces Trinseo’s commitment to serve customers in Asia Pacific by producing the established MAGNUM™ ABS brand. Trinseo will begin selling ABS from this plant in the fourth quarter of 2017.
