OMNOVA Solutions recently announced its 2010 Technology Award recipients. This annual award program recognizes exemplary technological contributions by associates in the company’s research and development, sales and marketing, technical service, operations, product management, LEAN SixSigma, and strategic sourcing organizations.

These technological innovations in new product development and process improvements reportedly positively impact customers in virtually all of OMNOVA’s served markets. Recipients hail from across the company’s global operations, including its Performance Chemicals business segment facilities in Akron, Ohio; Mogadore, Ohio; Calhoun, GA; and Green Bay, WI; as well as the company’s newly acquired chemical facilities in Villejust and Le Havre, France.

“As a more global company, these innovations enable us to distinguish ourselves in the markets in which we serve,” said Kevin McMullen, chairman and CEO. “We are better positioned to realize opportunities in new and adjacent markets through the enhancement of our existing competencies, as well as developing new, sustainable offerings for the future. These innovation teams have clearly focused on delivering value to our customers and enhancing our operations.”
