San Mateo, Calif. — DSM Engineering Plastics has opened an office in San Mateo to support the consumer electronics business.
The company cited rapid growth in demand for high-performance engineering plastics in products including smart phones, tablets and ultrabooks.
“We are making this move to give DSM a hub in the fastest-growing design area and be close to the designers and engineers of electronics, completing the circle as we already have a solid footprint in the manufacturing base,” said Richard Pieters, president of DSM Engineering Plastics — Americas, in a news release. “This places us closer to our West Coast customers, helping to drive early involvement in product design, leading to shorter development cycles and more efficient manufacturing processes.”
DSM Engineering Plastics maintains its Americas headquarters in Troy, Mich.
