Celanese Corp., a leading global chemical company, recently announced it will rename its AT Plastics Inc. business Celanese EVA Performance Polymers Inc.

Celanese Corp., a leading global chemical company, recently announced it will rename its AT Plastics Inc. business, an ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymer and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) resin producer, Celanese EVA Performance Polymers Inc.  The name change is expected to occur on Aug. 1, 2009. 

The new name highlights Celanese’s commitment to this business via its recent investment in the company’s Edmonton, Canada, facility, and through its integration into the global Celanese brand. In addition, the new name reflects the high level of sophistication of the unit’s work in manufacturing EVA copolymers, and the resulting value the producer brings to customer applications in both traditional and new markets. 

“By integrating EVA Performance Polymers into the Celanese family of businesses, we can capitalize on the company’s global brand awareness and recognition, as well as tap the experience and resources of a leader in the chemicals industry, including superior research and development and world-class manufacturing practices to make this one of the elite polymer-producing businesses in the world,” said Michael Stubblefield, general manager.
