We have a great set of businesses, leadership positions across our portfolio, long-term customer partnerships, and a dedication to continuous improvement and innovation we can leverage for further success. As an independent company, we can accelerate our progress on all fronts and take our rightful place alongside other industry leaders.”
Nouryon chief communication officer Vivi Hollertt added: “When we started developing our new name and brand we asked our employees what mattered most to them. Our employees are especially proud of our heritage, as well our track record of growing through partnerships, innovation, sustainability, and contributing to society.
“We combined all of this to create a brand identity for Nouryon which is true to who we are and helps us stand out from our competitors.”
