OMNOVA Solutions Changes Name of Decorative Products Business Segment
February 26, 2013

Fairlawn, Ohio-based OMNOVA Solutions has changed the name of its decorative products business segment to Engineered Surfaces. The new name reflects the critical role of technology and innovation, which along with design, are key differentiators for the company. OMNOVA’s Engineered Surfaces segment produces coated fabrics, laminates and films that are engineered to provide performance features, such as durability, cleanability, and stain, abrasion and chemical resistance, as well as offering innovative and on-trend design. “With the 2012 divestiture of our commercial wallcovering product line, we took the opportunity to refocus our portfolio and emphasize our commitment to continuing to offer enhanced performance through engineering and innovation,” said Dave Maynard, president of the Engineered Surfaces segment. “Our global team is better positioned to provide differentiated, value-added surfacing solutions to our customers across a wide range of applications. While our new name emphasizes our core competencies in performance technologies, OMNOVA remains focused on incorporating on-trend color and design in our products.”
