The thyssenkrupp Engineered Plastics Mission

Strategic Suppliers

Our Mission Statement was developed at the thyssenkrupp AG level to promote a common philosophy and strategic focus throughout the thyssenkrupp global organization, including thyssenkrupp Materials NA.

The Mission Statement addresses four fundamental dimensions. The first is strengthening the common base of shared beliefs. Next is providing guidance in times of fundamental change. The Mission Statement gives us guidelines for collaboration and teamwork, and finally, it clarifies what thyssenkrupp as a company stands for, today and tomorrow.

We are constantly working at building a network of strategic partnerships that allow us to maintain inventories on plastic materials and industrial plastic shapes for all types of industries. Through these partnerships we stay on the cutting edge of new technologies and advancements in plastics materials. We have locations across the United States and we offer competitive pricing, advanced material tracking and processing capabilities, all while following the guidelines of the IAPD Green Scene. It's all part of the AIN Advantage.
