One Step Ahead

Trinseo’s TPE and TPU development & manufacturing center has been a pioneer in the world of plastic compound production since its founding in 1956, by Sergio Brunetti in Bassano del Grappa, in the Northern Italian hills not far from the Dolomite Mountains. Initially called Applicazioni Plastiche Industriali (API), it is located in a strategic position at the heart of an area with a strong heritage in providing materials for clothing and footwear, close to the commercial hub of Venice. This meant API benefited from a wealth of knowledge which helped its intensive research and development efforts. Trinseo acquired API in 2017, already a worldwide leader in the development and production of thermoplastic elastomeric compounds and bioplastics.

Trinseo is constantly pushing the envelope of what’s possible to enhance our reputation as a trusted supplier for the fashion industry – successfully anticipating the needs of an ever-changing market with a growing range of innovative products.
