SHANGHAI – Demonstrating the advanced engineered materials driving today’s consumer electronics, automotive, medical and packaging innovations, Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company, will showcase at Chinaplas® 2014 - Asia's biggest plastics trade fair held in Shanghai from April 23-26 - a product portfolio designed to create customer value, including engineered materials, EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) polymers and cellulose derivatives.
In welcoming customers and partners to Chinaplas 2014 booth N2B01 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, Celanese will demonstrate why selecting the right materials partner and the right solution can be the difference between product success or product failure.
“As customer needs diversify, Celanese is well positioned within China, as well as the greater Asia region, to meet the demanding requirements of consumer and industrial customers,” said Mark Oberle, senior vice president, Asia. “The need for our customers to rapidly develop products for their customer base is ever increasing; and that’s why partnering with Celanese can provide a critical and competitive advantage when bringing new and innovative products and applications to market.”

A new, unified brand: Celanese – The chemistry inside innovation™
Celanese recently announced a unified brand which moves the company toward achieving its vision of becoming “the first-choice chemistry solution source for its customers.”

“This unified brand represents the depth and breadth of industry and chemistry knowledge, the capabilities to innovate for our customers, the dedication to creating value, and a commitment to partnerships to help our customers succeed,” said Oberle. “We welcome everyone from the plastics industry attending Chinaplas 2014 to visit our booth and see how Celanese can be a partner in their success.”
