STOCKMEIER Urethanes USA, Inc. Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary

Clarksburg, WV – May 4, 2023 – STOCKMEIER Urethanes USA, Inc announces
its 20 th anniversary this month as a specialty polyurethane systems
manufacturer in the United States.

The STOCKMEIER Urethanes USA site in Clarksburg, West Virginia was
purchased in 2003. In 2005, the development and production of
polyurethane coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers for the
industrial and sports & leisure industries began. At that time, there were
just eight employees: today, the Clarksburg site employees over 75
consisting of researchers, laboratory technicians, production operators, a
sales force and other important team members.

CEO and President Christian Martinkat states, “STOCKMEIER Urethanes
USA has experienced phenomenal growth in its 20-years of existence here
in Clarksburg.”

Choosing Clarksburg for the new site was the right decision, said Martinkat.
“The West Virginia Economic Development Authority, the West Virginia
Manufactures Association, local government and many others with whom
we work with have always listened to our concerns, needs and visions.
Then and now, we know we made the right decision being here in the
Mountain State.”

When the company opened the site in America, it was a brand-new
company and they only brought with them a couple customers they were
previously selling to in Germany. “We literally started from scratch,” stated
Martinkat. “Since our inception here, we have expanded our product
portfolio, entered new markets, installed numerous production and lab
equipment, streamlined processes, improved IT technology and completed
many renovations to our facilities.

All these continuous improvement projects have allowed us to be even better at what we do and provide, and
we are not done yet.”

Melissa Martinkat, US Chief of Staff, added that beyond those
improvements, the company puts a large focus on supporting local
communities by participating in fundraisers, donating to charities and
scholarships, sponsoring events and participating in educational programs
in schools.

STOCKMEIER Urethanes USA has also been on their journey to continue
being an environmental steward by being members of and participating in
the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care ® program.

In this program, there are set standards which must be met that
demonstrates the company’s commitment to the health and safety of their
employees, the communities in which they operate, and the environment.
Over the last 20 years, the company’s dedication to quality, innovation and
superior customer service has allowed them to become a trusted supplier
of polyurethane products. Martinkat states the company will continue to be
a family owned and operated company with a strong commitment to their
customers, employees and partners for many years to come.
