ERJ staff report (DS)
Berwyn, Pennsylvania -- Styron, the global materials company established in June 2010 folowing a spin-off from Dow Chemicals, has announced plans to change its company name to Trinseo.
The name change will be fully effective in all countries later in 2011; the company will continue to do business as Styron until that time.
"We believe that the new name of Trinseo will position the company better for future growth and greater potential as a global materials company," said Chris Pappas, president and CEO of Styron. "The name Styron is strongly tied to the styrenics chain - particularly polystyrene and styrene monomer, which are an important part of our company - but we are much more than that. Our new name of Trinseo will communicate that we are leaders in a broader range of businesses, products and technologies, and it underscores our commitment to growth."
