Rutland has joined PolyOne’s range of speciality inks and coatings, allowing the company to bring global leadership in innovation and technology to the textile inks and printing industry.
PolyOne plans to continue producing and marketing all Rutland brands, including Rutland, PRINTOP, QCM, and Union Ink, as well as its own Wilflex products. The combined portfolios offer customers a full array of solutions to best suit their unique needs and performance goals.
The joining of these companies expands PolyOne’s global inks footprint, with sales personnel and facilities in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia. Scott Craig, general manager, Specialty Inks at PolyOne, will oversee both businesses.
All of Rutland’s brands and product offerings will remain available to customers through their current, respective distributors and sales personnel. There are no changes planned in either regard. All products will continue to be commercially available in their respective regions as well.
Mr Craig said: “PolyOne and Rutland had the industry’s best technologies as independent companies. Together, we will be even stronger. With our joined forces, we will deliver the best products and services of anyone in our industry.”
