Avient Corporation 最初是在 2000 年通过合并材料行业的两家公司而成立的 PolyOne Corporation。The early years were challenging as the company struggled to find or create its identity as a combined enterprise.That changed in 2006 when we embarked on a specialty transformation driven by our four-pillar strategy of Specialization, Globalization, Commercial Excellence and Operational Excellence.
As the company evolved into specialty areas, we focused on putting our customers and their needs first, then looking inward to make a difference. Coincident with the transformational acquisition of the Clariant Color business in 2020, we branded the collective enterprise Avient—a new name for a new kind of materials company.
In 2022, we dramatically advanced our specialty journey and expanded our materials offering with two transformational portfolio moves. We completed the acquisition of the protective materials business of DSM, including the Dyneema® brand, the World’s Strongest Fiber™. Also, we divested our Distribution business to an affiliate of H.I.G. Capital.
Today, we are a leading formulator of specialized and sustainable material solutions that transform customer challenges into opportunities, bringing new products to life for a better world. Our offerings include specialty engineered materials, performance fibers, advanced composites, and color and additive systems.
Headquartered in Avon Lake, Ohio, Avient employs approximately 9,700 people at manufacturing sites and technical labs in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
On 2022年9月1日, we completed the purchase of the protective materials business of DSM (including the Dyneema® brand), now called Avient Protective Materials. The foundation of Avient Protective Materials (APM) is the renowned technology and globally admired brand of Dyneema®, the World’s Strongest Fiber™.
This ultra-lightweight specialty fiber, 15 times stronger than steel, is used in demanding applications, such as personal protection, marine and sustainable infrastructure, renewable energy, industrial safety, and outdoor sports. The business includes six production facilities, four R&D centers, and approximately 1,000 employees worldwide.
From responsible manufacturing practices to innovative sustainable solutions, the addition of Avient Protective Materials not only advances our specialty portfolio, it also complements Avient’s approach to sustainability.
