On May 30, PolyOne Corporation officially celebrated the opening of its vinyl compounds plant located in Chiling Industrial Zone, Houjie Town of Dongguan, a city in the Guangdong province of South China.

Mr. Huiqing Li, head of Houjie Town, attended the opening ceremony as a VIP guest. PolyOne's attendees included Robert Rosenau, senior vice president and general manager - Geon Performance Polymers, and Willie Chien, vice president and general manager - Color and Engineered Compounds Asia.

PolyOne's Dongguan plant was acquired from Ngai Hing PlastChem Company Ltd, the vinyl compounding subsidiary of Ngai Hing Hong Company Limited.

PolyOne completed the acquisition of the assets and operations in January 2008. Since the acquisition, PolyOne has modified and upgraded equipment in the facility, trained the staff to produce Geon compounds, and enhanced Environmental Health & Safety (“EHS”) conditions to meet Chinese and PolyOne EHS standards.

"I am pleased to say that the operational improvements initiated during the past five months have taken this operation from struggling to profitability and set it up to accommodate future growth,” said Rosenau.

PolyOne's local and global Geon Compound customers will experience faster delivery time and prompt technical service with the opening of the Dongguan plant.

PolyOne now has six sites in China; the other locations are:
- Shanghai (color and additives)
- Shenzhen (color and additives, engineered materials and polymer coating systems)
- Suzhou (engineered materials)
- Suzhou (GLS thermoplastic elastomers)
- Tianjin (color and additives).
