Michelman Opens New Advanced Materials Collaboration Center
Michelman celebrated the grand opening of its new Advanced Materials Collaboration Center (AMCC) on October 2, 2014 at the company’s global headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio. The AMCC enhances Michelman’s ability to develop innovative water-based coatings, surface additives and polymers for the many industries it serves.
The AMCC includes six new laboratories with state-of-the art equipment, bright and accessible open space and meeting rooms designed to allow application teams to collaborate on projects, and office space for staff and associates. The building was designed physically and technologically so that Michelman’s teams of internal application specialists and chemists are able to seamlessly interact with customers, vendors, research universities and other R&D facilities engaged in activities related to the markets Michelman serves around the globe.
New simulation equipment in Michelman’s pilot laboratory allows the company to more accurately observe how product solutions perform under actual end-use conditions, and use that information to improve formulations. This capability helps customers reduce product concept to commercialization time.
