Technical Service Chemist - Polymer Company
Polymer Talent Global Polymer House – Technical Service Coatings Chemist / Scientist
The role level is flexible.
If someone is looking for very broad exposure across nearly all the chemistries and hence industries that coatings go into, this is a good career stop or long term destination.
Unique vs. their competitors, they have a broad offering (reactor capability to handle a range of polymers) and ties to a raw material supply base based upon a series of acquisitions.
- Like all the major polymer houses, this role will lead adoption of client’s polymers in coatings by demonstrating performance in prototype systems, visiting / calls with customers, providing support to the sales / marketing organization, and attending trade shows. - Their employees tend to develop a very strong presence in industry and to the technologies they support. I actually shook hands and chatted with their CEO at a previous American Coatings Show: he was down to earth and approachable like their other people I have met at trade shows and conferences. - As a global company the US roles often work with other US sites and global technical teams - With them exiting PE ownership they are investing in a pilot plant, robust global communications, and a larger TS team to support customers - Coatings resins sales have doubled over the past ten year
