DSM sharpens strategic focus towards the coatings market
June 16, 2011
DSM has reorganized its business units DSM Powder Coating Resins and DSM NeoResins+ into a single new unit, DSM Coating Resins. In the restructuring towards one coating resins unit, a subdivision will be made based on different market dynamics, which will be reflected in the organizational approach for these subdivisions. DSM Coating Resins will be headed by Patrick Niels, currently business unit director of the Powder Coating Resins unit, and will be led from Zwolle, the Netherlands. Steve Hartig, currently business unit director of DSM NeoResins+ will move to lead another unit within DSM. The changes went into effect April 1, 2011.
