The new center brings together the Sales, Marketing, Technical Service, and Research and Development organizations and several functions that support Allnex's four key business groups - Radcure Energy Curable Resins, Powder Coating Resins, Liquid Coatings and Additives, and Crosslinkers - in a modern building with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.
The uniting of several smaller research laboratories and the talents and expertise of approximately 95 employees under one roof will help the company further develop the Allnex brand and foster teamwork, creativity, innovation, and customer focus, according to Tom Kelly, Americas Vice President for Allnex USA Inc. At the same time, attractive financial incentives are helping offset relocation expenses from Smyrna and to create a comfortable and welcoming work environment.
"With the opening of the new Americas headquarters, Allnex is well-positioned to provide both our customers and employees with the support they need to maximize their success," Tom says. "And, as a state-of-the-art facility, the laboratory space has been designed to meet the most stringent safety and environmental standards."
The site will celebrate this milestone for Allnex, and the Americas region, with a grand opening orchestrated by the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce, which has welcomed Allnex into the Chairman's Circle and into the Alpharetta community. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place to commemorate this event.
"We are very excited to have this new, advanced Technology Center open for use, as it aligns with our strategy to accelerate growth in key markets," states Frank Aranzana, CEO of Allnex. "The creation of the new Americas Headquarters is one more example of how Allnex, as an independent company, is reinforcing its position as a global leader in coating resins and additives."
This new Technology Center facilitates paint formulation, technical service, raw material research, resins modification and new resins development.
