Mitsubishi Chemical optimizes global MMA product supply network, unifies regional MMA operations under new name—Mitsubishi Chemical Methacrylates

Major regional subsidiaries such as Lucite International change their name

TOKYO, April 1, 2021—Companies under the Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation global Methyl-methacrylate (MMA) Domain unify today under a new name, Mitsubishi Chemical Methacrylates. Major regional subsidiaries in the Americas, Asia and Europe, including former Lucite International, have changed their name as part of this unification.
