Ascend Performance Materials is a global leader in the production of Nylon 6,6. We have a long history in the manufacture of Nylon 6,6. Monsanto formed its Chemicals Division in the 1950s, which included the production of Nylon 6,6. In 1997, Monsanto spun off its Chemicals Division to create Solutia Inc., and on June 1, 2009, SK Capital Partners purchased Solutias Integrated Nylon business and established Ascend Performance Materials LLC. SK Capital Partners, a private investment firm, has assembled a strong executive team with deep industry roots and a commitment to the Nylon 6,6 market.
Our world-scale manufacturing facilities are fully integrated, meaning Ascend has complete ownership of the technology used to make Nylon 6,6. This gives us the flexibility to respond to the expanding needs of our customers. We are more focused than ever on our customers to understanding their unique challenges in the market, to developing product solutions that address their market needs, and to providing excellent customer and technical service. We are committed to the Nylon 6,6 market, our valued customers, and to our position as a reliable supplier of high quality Nylon 6,6 products.
