Trinseo, the global materials solution provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, has been awarded by the European Plastics Converters association (EuPC) in conjunction with the Polymers for Europe Alliance the Best Polymer Producer Award for Europe 2017 in the category of polystyrene. The award was accepted at the EuPC Annual Meeting in Madrid on June 1 by Tim Stedman, SVP and Business President, Basic Plastics.
The annual Best Polymer Producers Awards recognize suppliers in eight polymer categories including, LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, PET, PVC, PC, PS and PP. The voting for award recipients consists of a confidential online voting system, in which converters submit their selection for the two best polymer suppliers per polymer type. Each supplier is rated according to five criteria in the areas of Delivery Reliability, Quality, Regulatory Compliance/Technical Service, Communication and Innovation.
“I am pleased to accept this award on behalf of Trinseo, particularly as this honor is voted upon by converters and our customers in the industry,” said Stedman. “This accolade particularly reinforces one of our core values at Trinseo, namely our commitment to customers via collaboration, delivering value to our customers through technology, innovation and collaboration.
