Provider of specialized polymer materials, PolyOne has opened a new Innovation Center in Avon Lake, Ohio. The new facility provides advanced capabilities to customers for application development, process optimization, testing and color matching.
The Avon Lake center required an investment of more than $3 million during the first phase development. This facility represents a major expansion of PolyOne’s customer-focused resources.
