Polyethylene Supplier (Real)ationships Start with a Plant Built Around You

We know there is nothing more important to polyethylene (PE) converters and manufacturers than a reliable polyethylene supply. After all, even minor shipment delays and product quality issues can be felt throughout the entire supply chain.

By Shell Polymers on Oct 24, 2019

At Shell Polymers, we understand that a dependable polyethylene supplier translates to increased efficiency and lower operational costs. That’s why we selected Pennsylvania for our state-of-the-art polyethylene plant and home to our buyer-centric approach we like to call (Real)ationships.

A Polyethylene Supplier That’s Closer to You

Our new plant is strategically located in Monaca, Pennsylvania, just 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh on the Ohio River. This area is within 700 miles of 70% of the US polyethylene converter market, so shipping delays and stressful operational hold-ups can become a thing of the past.

The new facility empowers companies with a nearby polyethylene supplier and industry experts who are close to home. As this accessibility helps plastic converters to expedite operations and slash transportation costs, supply chains can systematically become shorter and more efficient. (Your business will welcome that boost to your bottom line!)

Resources to Make Your Big Ideas Happen

This new plant also introduces our Application Hall, a game-changing technological hub that can support customers throughout the polyethylene market. We know you may not always have the resources you need to make that big idea happen, so our revolutionary technical lab contains commercial-sized conversion units for:

The resources we provide through the application hall will support customers right in their backyard and be home to technical polymer expertise.

How We’re Building (Real)ationships

The plant’s location and technology is helping Shell Polymers set a new industry standard in speed, reliability, and most importantly, customer experience. To forge a new kind of buyer relationship – our aforementioned (Real)ationships –  we conducted interviews with converters across the country to better understand the challenges polyethylene converters face every day.

Thanks to those conversations, we know there’s nothing worse than getting bad news, like a delayed shipment notice, at the last minute. That’s why we are implementing technologies that connect with customers before an issue arises. Our proactive logistics management will provide supply chain transparency.

Customer feedback like this has been the driving force behind the new systems and innovative processes that will allow us to build strong (Real)ationships with the entire polyethylene market.
