Hexion Inc. (“Hexion” or the “Company”) was recently named a “Leading International Coating Enterprise” in China by Paints and Coatings Industry magazine.


“We are pleased to receive this honor and believe it further validates our long-standing commitment to serving as a leader in the coatings and composites industry in China and the entire Asia Pacific region,” said Craig A. Rogerson, Chairman, President and CEO. “We remain focused on developing innovative coatings solutions for our global customers. On the heels of our recent opening of our new Application Development Center (ADC) in Shanghai and our diversified product portfolio, including our EPIKOTE™ and EPIKURE™ epoxy systems for wind energy and our NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne system, we believe we are well-positioned for further regional growth.” Craig added further.
