CLINTON, TENN., November 15, 2023 –– Techmer PM, a global leader in polymer materials, announced the establishment of the Kimberly Park site in Dalton, Georgia, as its future Fiber Center of Excellence.
Techmer PM will also move its nearby facility on Tyler Street to the Kimberly Park location in phases and expects to complete the transition by the end of 2024. “We are excited to combine two great teams in Dalton under one roof. Our Kimberly Park site offers space for growth inside the facility and with its surrounding property for future expansion. As we continue to grow the business, we will make strategic investments at this site to meet customer and market needs,” said Michael McHenry, chief executive officer of Techmer PM.
The consolidation of both sites as the Fiber Center of Excellence will provide several advantages to Techmer’s customers, including:
- Focus on innovation – a Fiber Innovation Center will be created within the site to help Techmer establish technical excellence in the fiber and artificial turf markets.
- Enhanced collaboration – bringing the best of both sites to enable better collaboration in pursuit of One Techmer.
- Streamlined processes – simplifying customer interactions and reducing the complexity of the supply chain for optimal customer experience.
Jon Rogers, Techmer PM’s vice president of Sales and Marketing, said, “We expect this strategic move to grow our local footprint and better serve our customers. We believe having all our technologies, equipment, lab capabilities, and experienced team in one location will better benefit our customers.”
“The transition to Kimberly Park will be done meticulously, thoughtfully, and over an extended period to ensure the best possible level of customer service. We have dedicated teams to ensure smooth progression while ensuring our day-to-day operations are not disrupted,” added McHenry.
Techmer PM acquired Advanced Color Technologies (ACT) on July 31, 2023, demonstrating Techmer’s commitment to the fibers and plastics industries by investing in high-quality people and assets to stimulate continued innovation in the market.
