Georgia-Pacific Seeks Development Partners

Georgia-Pacific Chemicals LLC is proactively seeking development partners to accelerate the advancement of significant technologies, support growth opportunities and address customer needs. 

"Using an open innovation strategy provides the opportunity to channel the technology of our partners to meet both our visions and satisfy our customers' objectives," says Larry Gollob, director – Georgia-Pacific Chemicals Research and Development.  "This strategy will also enhance and accelerate our internally-generated R&D pipeline." 

Georgia-Pacific Chemicals seeks partners within universities, private and federal laboratories, entrepreneurs and corporations that have technologies of interest to leverage its own application and development capabilities.

As part of this effort, Georgia-Pacific Chemicals has appointed Kim Tutin to the newly created role of technology and innovation scout.  In this role, Tutin will identify and commercialize diverse technologies and sustainable solutions to address customer needs in Georgia-Pacific Chemicals' various areas of expertise, such as thermosetting resins and innovative materials used in building products, paper, packaging, mining and other industrial fields.

"I am excited that Georgia-Pacific Chemicals has committed to further energizing an open innovation strategy," says Tutin.  "I'm looking forward to building collaborative relationships to create innovative solutions for our customers."
