Sun Plastech Has Rebranded to Asahi Kasei Asaclean Americas
Company believes the new brand emphasizes the technical expertise and global product development focus for which Asahi Kasei is so well known.
Manufacturer and distributor of Asaclean purging compounds Sun Plastech, Inc. (SPI), Parsippany, N.J., will change its name to Asahi Kasei Asaclean Americas, effective August 1, 2020.
SPI initially joined the Asahi Kasei Group nearly twenty-five years ago as one of the Japanese company’s original American entities. Today its name reflects the close relationship to its parent company.
Said v.p. Phani Nagaraj, “This is an exciting new chapter in our history. We are incredibly proud to be a part of the Asahi Kasei family, and this change brings us to closer to the values and ideals that make us the Best Place to Work in the plastics industry. We believe our new brand will emphasize our technical expertise and our global focus on product development and R&D which Asahi Kasei is so well known for. Asahi Kasei Asaclean Americas will continue to focus on providing ultimate value for our customers.”
The name-change and rebranding will not have any impact on the Asaclean products that processors have come to know, emphasized Nagaraj. “Our production, development, customer support, and distribution have not changed in any way. Although our name is changing, your day-to-day experience with the Asaclean brand will continue to match or exceed your expectations.”
Reversal of some factors driving prices up could change the trajectory in the second or third quarter.
SolVin has developed technology that allows production of what are said to be the world’s first PVC long- or continuous-fiber composites.
