Ineos Styrolution Completes Acquisition of SBC Business from Chevron Phillips

Ineos Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announces today the completion of the acquisition of the global K-Resin styrene-butadiene copolymers (SBC) business from Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC and Daelim Industrial Co. Ltd., following receipt of all applicable regulatory and legal approvals. The transaction, which was agreed on October 31, 2016, includes the purchase of the equity interests of K R Copolymer Co. Ltd (KRCC), K-Resin SBC intellectual property and other assets related to the SBC business. The transaction adds the K-Resin SBC plant, which is located in Yeosu Petrochemical Complex in South Korea, to the global Ineos Styrolution manufacturing network.

The new Ineos Styrolution SBC portfolio will include three brands: K-Resin, Styrolux and Styroflex. “This acquisition underlines our commitment to our ‘Triple Shift’ growth strategy with a focus on styrenic specialties, a balanced split across focus industries and a global presence. INEOS Styrolution has always been proud of working closely with its customers. Together with K-Resin, we are now even closer to our customers with production in all regions in all product groups including polystyrene, ABS Standard, and specialties such as SBC,” comments Kevin McQuade, CEO Ineos Styrolution.
