Nouryon announces new structure to support growth strategy

Nouryon has announced a new organizational model as part of its strategy to accelerate growth and drive performance improvement. The new model, which will take effect January 1, 2020, is organized around three market-focused Businesses supported by a centralized Operations and Functional structure.

The three Businesses and their leaders are as follows:

  • Technology Solutions: Johan Landfors has been named President; he was formerly Managing Director Polymer Chemistry
  • Industrial Chemicals: Knut Schwalenberg continues as President
  • Performance Formulations: the President for this business will be named at a later date

Leading the Operations organization:

  • Lanny Duvall continues as Chief Integrated Supply Chain Officer

 Having centralized Operations will drive efficiency and performance improvement based on strong regional hubs to support the company’s manufacturing base, while the Businesses can focus on customers and unique value propositions.

“This optimized model will allow our Businesses and support organizations to concentrate on what they do best,” said Charlie Shaver, Nouryon CEO. “Each Business will have a clear mission, driving management focus.”

Performance Formulations includes business lines based on tailored performance that require a high level of customer intimacy, such as those for personal care and agriculture
Technology Solutions focuses on leading products that are an integrated part of customer processes, such as catalysts and additives for the polymer and pulp industries
Industrial Chemicals builds on the company’s strong salt-chlorine value chain
