PolyOne: Expansion into China
PolyOne announced that it will open a new polymer distribution warehouse and sales facility on July 1 in Shanghai, China. The new distribution center will be focused on serving healthcare customers in the area. This marks the first entry point for PolyOne Distribution into Asia. This new facility is supposed to provide value to healthcare device manufacturers and processors in China by helping them to streamline logistics and simplify inventory management.
Rather than waiting six weeks or more for materials to arrive from the U.S., customers working with PolyOne Distribution in Shanghai will enjoy lead times within days, not weeks. Further, by relying on PolyOne to manage supply chain and material certification requirements, these customers will be able to spend more time focusing on growth and operational efficiency.
This expansion augments PolyOne’s established presence in China, which includes sales and manufacturing operations across the region for engineered materials, colorants and additives, thermoplastic elastomers, and vinyl-based solutions.
