Styron to Change Name to Trinseo

4:57 AM MDT | April 13, 2011 | Kerri Walsh

Styron will change its name to Trinseo later this year. Private Equity firm Bain Capital (Boston) bought Styron from Dow Chemical in June 2010 for $1.63 billion. Styron product lines include styrene-butadiene latex, styrene-butadiene rubber, polycarbonate, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene/styrene acrylonitrile resins, expandable polystyrene, polystyrene and styrene monomer units.
The name change will be fully effective in all countries later in 2011, Styron says. The company will continue to do business as Styron until that time.
“We believe that the new name of Trinseo will position the company better for future growth and greater potential as a global materials company,” says Chris Pappas, president and CEO of Styron. 
The name Trinseo comes from intrinsic, and the Latin verb root “eo,” which means “to go.”
