How is the world’s leading epoxy manufacturer planning to meet the needs of its customers worldwide? What are the key factors shaping the market?


This talk will cover the successful integration of the leading global epoxy business with the world’s chlor-alkali through a cohesive vision. It will also describe the strategies that the new leadership is implementing to extend its competitive position through commercialization and innovation to sharpen its delivery of solutions for the global epoxy business.

Backed by more than 60 years of continuing innovation, Olin serves a diverse array of industries and applications including Wind Energy, Electronics, Transportation, Consumer Goods, Engineering and Infrastructure.
