Since 2008, I’ve had the privilege of supporting our inspiring team of associates and the amazing work we do. Our legacy is long and accomplished, yet PolyOne’s new era as a specialty company is only just beginning. Performance Products and Solutions is comprised of the Geon Performance Materials (Geon) and Producer Services business units. The Geon brand name carries strong recognition globally and the business delivers an array of products and services for vinyl molding and extrusion processors located in North America and Asia. Geon’s products are sold to manufacturers of durable plastic parts and consumer-oriented products. We also offer a wide range of services including materials testing, component analysis, custom formulation development, colorant and additive services, part design assistance, structural analysis, process simulations, mold design and flow analysis and extruder screw design. The Producer Services business unit offers contract manufacturing and outsourced polymer manufacturing services to resin producers and polymer marketers, primarily in the United States and Mexico, as well as its own proprietary compounds for pressure pipe and drip irrigation applications. As a strategic and integrated supply chain partner, Producer Services offers resin producers a way to develop custom products for niche markets by using our process technology expertise and multiple manufacturing platforms.
