Huntsman Corporation announced yesterday that it is integrating Gomet, a leading producer of specialty components for the automotive after care market, into its Polyurethanes division.
Gomet, a business division of Rockwood Italia S.p.A. transferred to the Polyurethanes division following Huntsman Corporation’s purchase of a number of chemical businesses from Rockwood Holdings, Inc.

Integrated into Huntsman’s Polyurethanes division, Gomet will sit alongside the division’s existing automotive business, whose MDI-based technologies are used by many of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers. Working closely with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the Polyurethanes division’s global automotive team develops high quality materials and systems that improve comfort, performance and safety in seating, armrest, door, instrument panel and under bonnet applications.
Huntsman Polyurethanes operates world scale MDI facilities at its sites in Geismar, USA; Rotterdam, Netherlands; and Shanghai, China and has a global downstream network of more than 20 highly capable formulation facilities.
