DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DuPont) today announced SCG Chemicals has selected DuPont to progress its focus on Innovation Management, enabling SCG Chemicals to develop and bring to market high value-added products. The project builds on the long-standing relationship DuPont has had with SCG Chemicals to advance its operational excellence journey.

 

“We are appreciative and proud of the trust SCG Chemicals has placed in DuPont for the next phase of their operational aspiration aimed to strengthen their position in the marketplace,” said Srinivasan Ramabhadran, regional leader Asia Pacific for DuPont Sustainable Solutions. “We look forward to supporting SCG Chemicals’ process transformation to better identify, manage and deliver innovative new products.”

 

The focus on Innovation Management will transform SCG Chemicals’ ability to develop new high-performance products in high value-added market segments. The capability to develop and market these products will help insulate SCG Chemicals profitability from the very cyclical commodity polymer market downturns. The goals of the Innovation Management focus will be to bring a cultural change among employees at all levels and improve the company’s product development to bring new products to market in a more cost effective and sustainable manner.

 

“DuPont has been a valuable partner in enhancing our operational performance. I am confident that engaging DuPont Sustainable Solutions for this transformative project will support us in achieving the value creation objectives for our company,” said Cholanat Yanaranop, president of SCG Chemicals and executive vice president of SCG.
