A little over a year after acquiring BASF's share of Styrolution, INEOS changes names and log to reflect ownwership.

INEOS Styrolution Group GmbH, Frankfurt, Germany, is the new name by which Styrolution (U.S. office in Aurora, Ill.) will now be known. The move by INEOS (U.S. office in Houston) for the new name and accompanying logo is geared to making the INEOS ownership more visible, while acknowledging Styrolution’s established identity as a global leader in styrenics.


It was just a little over a year ago that INEOS acquired BASF’s share of Styrolution. The company was founded as a joint venture between the two in October 2011. Despite the company changing its names and logo, the company will continue to operate and actively pursue business opportunities as before, including continuing with the Triple Shift growth strategy introduced three years ago. It calls for a focus on higher-growth industries, styrenic specialties, and standard ABS and emerging markets. Stated Kevin McQuade, CEO, INEOS Styrolution, "INEOS ownership has opened up new opportunities which we are using as drivers for our growth strategy. Triple Shift therefore remains our guiding light as we move forward, backing our mission to support the success of our customers in their markets by giving them a competitive edge.”


  • PBT & PET Polyester: Part 2 The Performance Factor

    All things being equal, PET will outperform PBT mechanically and thermally. But the processor must dry the material properly and must understand the importance of mold temperature in achieving a degree of crystallinity that allows the natural advantages of the polymer to be realized.

    Helping electronics, lighting, and car engines keep cool are some new roles for hermoplastics that are formulated to replace metal or ceramic.

  • Density & Molecular Weight in Polyethylene

    This so-called 'commodity' material is actually quite complex, making selecting of the right type a challenge.
