A. Schulman To Open Distribution Hub In Stryker, Ohio
According to company officials, the center will offer warehousing and repackaging services to the local customers. In addition, the customers located in the area will benefit from the closer location and faster delivery times. The Stryker distribution center will be operational in the second quarter of calendar year 2017.
"The Stryker plant is ideally situated to open our new distribution center in order to service the local customers," said Albert Weber, Vice-President, Performance Materials. "Our customers will have faster access to a broad portfolio of prime and wide-spec polypropylene and polyethylene materials as well as a complete state-of-the art blending and repackaging center including rail car storage, warehousing and distribution services."
The Stryker plant was part of the Company's acquisition of Ferro Specialty Plastics Business, completed in 2014. A. Schulman closed this facility in 2015 and shifted the production to other facilities in North America, officials said. This facility will be now re-opened as an extension to the Company's existing warehousing and distribution business in order to address the needs of the local market.
