customers in key markets.



With so much of the U.S. personal care industry located on the East Coast, Lubrizol Advanced Materials recently opened a new laboratory in Piscataway, NJ.

“With these tools, we can characterize ingredients and measure their performance in product applications,” said Alan Suares, global manager of technical services and applications. “This impacts the overall design of molecules to further scientific knowledge and to maximize performance characteristics, which leads to innovative new materials for our customers.”
   
The site represents a significant investment in the company’s efforts to better serve its customers.
   
“We have the facility staffed with scientists who are committed to bringing excellence to our customers in the form of creativity, innovation and technical knowledge,” said Mitch Graham, director of sales, North America. “We look forward to working more closely with our customers to help develop breakthrough products that will ensure significant growth and a brighter future for us all.”
   
The laboratory currently employs four scientists with the capacity to expand further for future growth.
   
The research team at the Piscataway site includes (l-r): Yi Yang, Ph.D. senior research chemist, hair fixatives; Hector Hernandez, research chemist, hair fixatives; Jon Toliver, research chemist, hair conditioning; and Wing Li, lab manager and senior research chemist, hair conditioning.
