Songwon Industrial has announced that Giacomo Sasselli has joined the group as Executive Vice President Corporate Manufacturing and Engineering. This completes the strategy Songwon announced in March 2011 to establish a new organization for the group with a team of first class executives.

Mr. Sasselli, who started his career with the Italian Enichem group, has built an exceptionally strong technical foundation through focusing on the development of new chemical technologies and the improvement of existing ones, in a wide variety of chemistry industrial applications worldwide. Giacomo broadened his experience as a site manager, following which he joined Great Lakes Chemical Corporation. Here he expanded this role, taking responsibility for operations with a key emphasis on the technical-economic performance of a worldwide network of polymer additives production sites.

Jongho Park, Chairman and CEO of Songwon Group, commented: “We are delighted to have an executive of Giacomo’s caliber joining us. Songwon has set a course to recruit the best possible leaders and has shown its determination in pursuing its strategic direction to grow into a major global player in the specialty chemicals industry. Giacomo completes the leadership team, which will further enhance our ability to realize our ambitious goals. With more than 20 years experience in the polymer additives field, together with his passion, creativity and proven results, he will be able to make a valuable contribution in establishing Songwon Group as the global industry partner of choice, through delivering solutions that meet the demands of our customers in the challenging times ahead.”

Songwon, a leading additives supplier to the polymer industry, announces the development of a new and innovative range of high heat, low color distortation, and low emission additive formulations for thermoplastics which deliver significant benefits to compounders, molders and end-users.

Market demands for improved performance and durability in end-use applications have driven the requirements for absolute service life and average operating temperature to new levels. Existing systems based on phenolic antioxidants and thioesters are in danger of not meeting the more recent extended requirements. For materials such as filled or unfilled Polypropylene (PP), typically injection molded in thicker wall sections, the need for increased properties and longer life cycles are becoming a constant factor. Environmental, Health and Safety standards have also become more critical with a key focus on the reduction of emissions.

Klaus Keck, Manager Global Applications and Technical Service Community, stated: “Songwon has created a significant win-win solution. Not only can we outperform current industry standards by more than 50% when required; we are also able to meet these standards with reduced additive loadings. This in turn generates the additional benefits of low color distortion; often a problem when higher loadings are required. Lower loadings have a direct and positive effect on emissions.”

Klaus concluded: “Excellence in EH&S is a core value of Songwon and reflects the demands of our customers, many of whom are also leaders in their markets. Our new formulations represent an outstanding achievement and we are committed to raising the bar to ensure that we continue to be the partner of choice in additive systems.” Reader Enquiries:
