The company changed its name from Styron to Trinseo in 2014 to reflect our position as a materials company that goes beyond styrene and polystyrene. Our new name of Trinseo reflects a broader range of businesses, products and technologies.
Of course polystyrene and styrene monomer are an important part of our company – but we are much more than that.
The word comes from “intrinsic”, which means belonging to a thing by its very nature, or belonging to or lying within a given part. The root of “trins” is combined with “eo”, the Latin verb root meaning “to go”. Together these convey the concept that our people play in collaborating with our customers to enable their next generation of products.
