PolyOne plans to realign assets that were acquired as part of the 2013 acquisition of Spartech. These assets are primarily located in Ramos, Mexico and will now operate within producer services, a business unit of PP&S, which has headquarters in Seabrook, TX.
In connection with these changes, a separate facility located in Lockport, NY will also operate as part of producer services, and an administrative office in Washington, PA will close as this work is transitioned to Seabrook, TX. The company has realigned certain resources associated with Spartech's color and specialty compounds segment, based on how these resources will now report within PolyOne's businesses.
In July of 2013, PolyOne announced plans to close six manufacturing plants it received in the acquisition of Spartech and relocate production to other PolyOne facilities.
