Sun Plastech Inc. (SPI), manufacturer and distributor of Asaclean Purging Compounds, changed its name to Asahi Kasei Asaclean Americas, effective Aug. 1, 2020. SPI initially joined the Asahi Kasei Group nearly 25 years ago as one of the Japanese company’s original American entities. Today its name reflects the close relationship to its parent company, said the press release.
“This is an exciting new chapter in our history,” said Phani Nagaraj, Vice President. “We are incredibly proud to be a part of the Asahi Kasei family, and this change brings us closer to the values and ideals that make us the best place to work in the plastics industry. We believe our new brand will emphasize our technical expertise and our global focus on product development and R&D, which Asahi Kasei is so well known for. Asahi Kasei Asaclean Americas will continue to focus on providing ultimate value for our customers.”
Nagaraj emphasized that this name change and rebranding will not have any impact on Asaclean products. “Our production, development, customer support, and distribution have not changed in any way. Although our name is changing, your day-to-day experience with the Asaclean brand will continue to match or exceed your expectations,” said Nagaraj.
The Asaclean product line features mechanical- and chemical-grade purging solutions that are engineered for optimal performance based on customers’ processes and resins. They are suited for injection molding, extrusion, profile and sheet, blow-molding, and blown-film applications.
