Our divisional structure

Specialist performance-enhancing solutions, end market focused with reduced complexity

Synthomer is structured around three global divisions with a clear alignment to end markets to better serve our customers. With more than 30 sites across three continents, our reach is truly global, and every division is committed to delivering innovation, sustainability and excellence for your business.

Our new divisional structure since January 2023 is a response to our strategic evolution and reflects the integration of recent acquisitions, while fundamentally aligning our specialty operations with our end markets. Designed and managed to target the potential for organic growth that exists in each market, by harmonising different parts of our offering, we are reducing complexity, creating new opportunities for innovation and offering our customers a more cohesive experience. The result is a more progressive, efficient and effective Synthomer.

Coatings & Construction Solutions

We deliver solutions across a broad spectrum of coating and construction applications. Our specialist polymers enhance the sustainable performance of the products we rely on in the modern world. We work across architectural and masonry coatings, mortar modification, waterproofing and flooring, fibre bonding for applications from technical fabric to nappies, and our energy solutions promote drilling stability in the most challenging operating environments.

Adhesive Solutions

Our adhesive solutions bond, modify and compatibilise surfaces and components. Some typical end markets for our products include tapes and labels, packaging, hygiene, tyres and plastic modification, and we are a top one or two supplier across these markets in EMEA and the Americas. As well as bonding dissimilar surfaces together, our customisable products can help improve permeability, strength, elasticity, damping, dispersion and grip.

Health & Protection and Performance Materials

We help enhance protection and performance in a wide array of industries. We are a world-leading supplier of NBR and SBR latex water-based polymers for medical glove manufacture and are Europe’s largest manufacturer of SBR and SA high-performance binders for graphic, speciality paper and food packaging coatings. Our SBR, HS-SBR and SA binders help make the backing for carpet and artificial turf, and as gel foam elastomers for floor coverings.
