A. Schulman, Inc. operates as an international supplier of plastic formulations, resins, and services. The company provides solutions to meet its customers' demanding requirements through proprietary and custom-formulated products. The company's customers span a range of markets, such as packaging, mobility, building and construction, electronics and electrical, agriculture, personal care and hygiene, custom services, and sports, home and leisure. Product Families The company operates in six product families worldwide, such as Custom Performance Colors (CPC), Engineered Composites, Masterbatch Solutions, Engineered Plastics, Specialty Powders, and Distribution Services. CPC CPC offers powdered, pelletized, and liquid color concentrates that are custom-designed to improve all thermoplastic resins. These concentrates are available separately, or could be combined with additives as a complete package providing additional functionality, such as weather resistance. The company's expansive offering of color solutions includes a spectrum of standard and customized colors; organic and inorganic pigments; high chroma colors in translucent or opaque formats; and special effects, including but not limited to, metallic, pearlescent (shimmer), thermochromatic (heat sensitive), photochromatic (light sensitive), fluorescent, phosphorescent (glow-in-the-dark) and interference (color shift) technologies. The company expands color concentrates through its European acquisition of Deltaplast. The company expands its global network of CPC capabilities through acquisitions and strategic investment in key markets. CPC provides customers with a solution-based approach driven by technical understanding, responsive service, and consistent quality to address evolving market needs. The company’s color business engages with customers at every stage of their product cycle, from color selection to product delivery and ongoing support. Color products are suitable for various processes, such as injection molding, blow molding, compression molding, profile extrusion, blown film, cast film, oriented film, rotational molding, sheet and thermoforming, among others. The company’s color concentrates excel in many of the same markets as its Masterbatch Solutions product family (food packaging, industrial packaging, consumer products, etc.) and its Engineered Plastics product family, which provides an excellent platform for cross utilization of technology. They are a source for many of the world’s major consumer products companies, providing aesthetic solutions for a range of bottles, containers, caps and closures providing a consistent brand identity for them.
