Atoglas Becomes Altuglas International

- Communiqué de presse
Atoglas, subsidiary of the Arkema Group and world leader in PMMA, becomes Altuglas International from today. This change falls within the dynamic that created Arkema in October 2004.

Managing Director Bertrand Repelin says: "Our new visual identity clearly reflects our membership to the Arkema Group, adopting its colours and graphic style."


"We have sought to associate our corporate name, and therefore our corporate brand name, Altuglas International, more closely with our product trademarks: Altuglas® in Europe and Asia, Plexiglas® in North and Latin America", Bertrand Repelin emphasizes.


Altuglas International will continue to offer customers an excellent range of innovative PMMA products in resin, capstock and sheet form. "Our sales teams, who have won our customers' confidence, will continue to provide quality products and service," according to Bertrand Repelin.


As a player in the world chemicals market, Arkema combines three balanced and coherent areas of business: Vinyl Products, Industrial Chemicals and Performance Products. With a presence in over 40 countries and a staff of 18,600, Arkema has a turnover of 5,200 million euros. With six research centres in France, the United States and Japan, and its well-known international trademarks, Arkema holds a leading position in its principal markets.


Altuglas International, subsidiary of the Arkema Group, is world leader in PMMA and uses two widely-known trademarks for its resin and sheet - Altuglas® in the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Plexiglas® in North and Latin America.
