DALLAS, SHANGHAI and FRANKFURT — October 1, 2013 — As customer needs diversify – and the complexity
of their solutions increase – identifying the right partners and the right solutions can be the
difference between product success or failure.
Recognizing this need, Celanese, a global technology and specialty materials company, is
simplifying its brand architecture to capture in a single brand the full suite of Celanese
technology, resources, products and solutions. This change moves Celanese toward achieving its
vision of becoming the first-choice chemistry solution source for its customers.
“Our vision represents Celanese’s 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 Mark Rohr, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
“We believe the phrase that best describes Celanese is ‘The chemistry inside innovation™’.”
Becoming ‘One Celanese’
There are several changes Celanese is making to support this vision and to communicate its
value proposition to customers. Beginning today, Celanese is launching a unified brand that
represents the company’s multiple businesses and capabilities.
Historically, Celanese was represented by separate businesses, including: Acetate Products,
Acetyl Intermediates, Advanced Fuel Technologies, Clarifoil, Emulsion Polymers, EVA Performance
Polymers, Nutrinova, and Ticona Engineering Polymers. Each of these names will fade and be replaced
“Going forward, everyone in Celanese, our world-class products, our process technologies and
solutions from historical businesses will now be represented by one Celanese name,” said Rohr.
Some of these products, solutions and technologies include:
- cellulose derivatives such as Clarifoil® and CelFX® matrix technology;
- emulsion polymers including EcoVAE®, TruModa® and Vinamul®;
- engineered materials such as Hostaform® / Celcon® POM, GUR® UHMW-PE and Celstran LFRT;
- EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) polymer products including Ateva® and VitalDose®;
- food ingredients including Sunett® and the Qorus® sweetener system; and
- intermediate chemistry products and technologies such as AOPlus®, VAntagePlus® and TCX®
“The new Celanese brand reinforces the power of our global organization. The brand also
speaks to our unwavering focus on the safety of our people, plants and products; our commitment to
operations excellence; and the strength of Celanese’s talented employees who collaborate with
our customers to develop fresh solutions that solve their most critical needs,” said Rohr.
