Material Suppliers will Offer “Customer Service Centres” at NPE2015

05 August 2014

Thus Far Nine Companies Plan to Create Convenient and Comfortable Meeting Areas, including an Extensive South Hall Facility for Dow.

During NPE2015: The International Plastics Showcase, several companies plan to offer “Customer Service Centers” where they can engage with processors, designers, OEM/Brand, and other business professionals.

The event organisers state thus far nine companies have committed to purchase space for Customer Service Centers, and several more firms are in discussions with SPI. The nine include The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), DSM Engineering Plastics, DuPont, Eastman Chemical Company, ExxonMobil Chemical Company, Formosa Plastics, LyondellBasell, PPG Industries, and Westlake Chemical Company.

“Dow introduced the customer center concept in 2002 and we have worked to raise the bar every year,” said Greg Jozwiak, North America Commercial Vice President for Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics. “Providing our customers and industry partners with a comfortable, exclusive venue for meetings, meals and other business services will continue to be a priority in 2015. Dow will also use the venue to showcase the latest polyolefin, elastomer and adhesive technologies. And, with the growth projects in the plastics sector set to come online in the coming year, we expect NPE 2015 to be a market catalyst to even greater growth and innovation.”

According to the organisers the Customer Service Centers will enable NPE2015 visitors to meet with current or prospective material suppliers in settings conducive to discussion, information exchange, and relationship building.

“The emerging importance of Customer Service Centers reflects a renewed commitment to NPE2015 by raw material suppliers, and highlights the importance of the materials aspect within plastics production life cycle,” said Brad Williams, SPI’s Director of Trade Show Marketing and Sales. “Visitors to NPE2015 will discover the full range of technologies necessary to stay competitive, including hundreds of new machines in full-scale operation and a wealth of resin, compound, and additive innovations.”
