Techmer PM Support of the Plastics Industry
As a leading producer of colors and additives for the plastics and fiber industries, innovation is at the core of what we do. Techmer PM has a laser focus on fostering innovation internally to develop customer-centric solutions and bring new products to market, as well as to create operational efficiencies and accelerate our sustainability efforts. In addition, Techmer PM continues to support innovation efforts at all levels of the supply chain to help drive the overall market forward. We can provide the most value when we contribute our time, talent, and internal resources toward industry activities that foster innovation, technology growth and advancement, as well as inspire the next generation of leaders and innovators.
One important way we help foster innovation across the industry is by hosting key conferences and events. This includes Fibertech and a Southern California Technical Conference, co-hosted with our Techmer ES business unit. Both events bring together industry leaders−including key suppliers and manufacturers−to discuss trends and technological developments, as well as collaborate on next-generation solutions to challenging problems. We are always looking for opportunities within the marketplace to strengthen our impact and promote industry innovation and collaboration.
Innovation and Technology Centers
Within Techmer PM, we continually invest in our facilities to stay ahead of the curve. For example, our Fiber Service Center in Dalton, Georgia offers designers an interactive experience. Here, floor coverings designers can work with our team when they need a quick custom color solution for rug, carpet or other flooring products. In addition, we operate Polytest, an independently certified polymer testing laboratory in Clinton, Tennessee that specializes in plastics testing, additive and color technology, and chemical analysis.
Techmer PM supports student designers through the prestigious Bill Moggridge Awards. The annual design awards program helps cultivate the next generation of designers and honors the life and career of legendary designer Bill Moggridge. Techmer PM sponsors the award, along with IDEO and the Bill Moggridge Awards Sustaining Committee. Please visit the Bill Moggridge Awards website for more information about Mr. Moggridge, the awards program, its supporters, and previous winners.
In other areas, Techmer PM also is a proud supporter of Roman Open Charities, which each year awards six scholarships to students at Dalton State College and Georgian Northwestern Technical College.
Supply Chain Responsibility
At Techmer PM we have always set high standards for the way we conduct business in the areas of corporate and social responsibility, business ethics, and compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. In turn, we expect the same commitment from our suppliers. This is why we have established the Techmer PM Supplier Conduct Principles. These principles establish the standards required for conducting business with Techmer PM. Our goal is to work with our suppliers to ensure full compliance with these principles.
