ATRP Solutions, Inc.—a subsidiary of Pilot Chemical Company—was renamed to Pilot Polymer Technologies, Inc. to reflect its range of technologies in chemical markets.
“Our name change shows Pilot Chemical’s commitment to growth and innovation in the specialty polymer market,” said Patrick McCarthy, president of Pilot Polymer Technologies. “It is great to be part of a company with the leadership, vision and resources to support such an entrepreneurial initiative.”
ATRP is based in Pittsburgh, which is where the lab and scientists will remain. The company was acquired by Pilot Chemical in July 2017 to increase its presence in the lubricant additives, paints and coatings and oil field chemicals markets.
“The new name better aligns ATRP Solutions with the Pilot brand and demonstrates Pilot Chemical’s confidence in Pilot Polymer Technologies to develop products and build its business,” said Pamela Butcher, president and CEO of Pilot Chemical.
