A. Schulman Inc is a processor of rubber compounds. It is an international supplier of high-performance plastic formulations, resins, and services and provides solutions through proprietary and custom-formulated products.

A. Schulman Inc was founded as an Ohio corporation in 1928 by Alex Schulman in Akron, Ohio as a processor of rubber compounds. The Company is an international supplier of high-performance plastic formulations, resins, and services and provides solutions to meet its customers' demanding requirements through proprietary and custom-formulated products. Its customers include markets such as packaging, mobility, building & construction, electronics & electrical, agriculture, personal care & hygiene, custom services, and sports, home & leisure. The Company operates in six product families: Custom Performance Colors, Engineered Composites, Masterbatch Solutions, Engineered Plastics, Specialty Powders and Distribution Services. Custom Performance Colors offers powdered, pelletized, and liquid color concentrates that are custom-designed to enhance virtually all thermoplastic resins. Engineered Composites are comprised of filled compounds which include thermoset bulk molding compounds, sheet molding compounds, thick molding compounds, and high performance Quantum Engineered Structural Composites solutions for multi-national original equipment manufacturers and custom molders that use these products in injection and compression molding processes. Masterbatches, which are also referred to as concentrates, are often the key ingredient in a successful application product formula. Masterbatches are combined with polymer resins by the Company's customers at the point-of-process to provide a property portfolio that meets needed performance criteria for a given product application. Engineered Plastics provide performance characteristics by combining high-performance polymer resins with various modifiers, reinforcements, additives and pigments, which result in a compound tailored to meet stringent customer specifications for durable applications. Specialty Powders includes size reduction services and material sales for applications such as rotational molding, oil and gas, sports and leisure, and other markets. As a distributor, the Company works with polymer producers to assist in servicing market segments that are not easily accessible to these producers, or does not fit into these producers' core customer segment or supply chain. The Company's segments are Europe, Middle East and Africa, United States & Canada, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Engineered Composites.
