Trinseo expands research capabilities in Terneuzen

By modernising two existing technical support center and research lab operations under one roof in Terneuzen, Trinseo has created a new plastics research centre that will house 180 non-manufacturing employees. The new facility combines Trinseo’s European Development Center for Plastics with its supporting functions like supply chain, environmental health + safety, quality and procurement, forming one of the company’s European logistical centres. This new facility makes the Terneuzen site the joint largest in Europe alongside Schkopau, Germany, and brings a range of knowledge and expertise together. The company said that the facility supports Trinseo’s plans to grow the Performance Material division by USD 100 million between 2016 and 2019.
