Geon Performance Solutions, manufacturer of polymer technologies, launches Project Collaboration, an opportunity for companies to take advantage of the intellectual and manufacturing know-how of the Geon workforce to support the fight against COVID-19. For the next 90 days, Geon says it will offer its expertise, at no cost, to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that have issues meeting demand, barriers getting virus-related products to market or have ideas to fight the pandemic but limited resources to implement them.

“Geon has the knowledge, expertise and assets to help companies get products to market and make a significant impact on minimizing the spread of the virus,” says Geon CEO Tracy Garrison. “Our team wants to do its part to support our communities in this time of dire need. Through Project Collaboration, we hope businesses can develop products more quickly and get them into the hands of those who need them most.” 

Project Collaboration may take a variety of forms depending on the needs of the individual company, including:

  • Rapid acceleration of custom formulas
  • Mold design support for healthcare and medical devices
  • Global connectivity to thousands of raw material suppliers, producers and manufacturers
  • Supply chain expertise to address the fast-changing environment
  • Accelerated pilot scale compounding
  • Commercial guidance for development of marketing/sales tools

“There are companies out there with great ideas but limited know-how to manage one or more aspects of the design, development, manufacturing or distribution process,” says Larry Shaw, Geon senior vice president and chief commercial officer. “We hope these companies will contact us so we can share our expertise and collaborate to make their idea a reality.”
