Infinity Compounding (Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, USA), a manufacturer of custom compounded engineered thermoplastics, reported on May 6 that it has taken on a new identity and now will be known as Americhem Infinity Engineered Compounds to reflect its close association with sister company Americhem Inc. The renaming reflects business synergies between the two companies and the fact that Americhem Infinity has the backing and capabilities of Americhem and all that those attributes offer to their customers.
“The new name and brand identity for Americhem Infinity reflects the similarities between the two companies, in that both companies enhance the properties of polymers for our customers,” says Rick Juve, CEO of Americhem. “Combining the size, scale, reach and the unique technologies of the two companies will further benefit the customers of both organizations.”
Americhem Infinity’s products are currently manufactured at its Swedesboro, N.J., USA, headquarters. Going forward, Americhem’s plants in Liberty, N.C., USA, and Suzhou, China, will also manufacture Americhem Infinity compounds.
“Our customers can expect the same partnership that they’ve enjoyed with Infinity since our founding in 2005,” says Carlos Carreno, president of Americhem Infinity. “We will maintain our focus on speed-to-market, service and technical expertise, and our customers will only benefit from our continued affiliation with Americhem, who focuses on the same facets of customer partnership.”
In recognition of the rebranding of the company, Americhem Infinity has launched a new website — www.americheminfinity.com — focusing on its products, markets and applications. It is fully integrated with the new Americhem website, which was launched in January.
Purchased in December 2012, Americhem Infinity specializes in highly engineered thermoplastic compounds, serving a variety of industries including medical, electrical/electronics, business machines, IT/disk drive, aerospace, industrial and consumer products. Americhem Infinity’s compounds are made with a variety of engineering resins and feature a multitude of reinforcement and filler options along with specialty additive packages to meet stringent demands.
