OMNOVA Solutions Recognizes Employee Innovations With 2010 Technology Awards

FAIRLAWN, Ohio, Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (NYSE: OMN) – OMNOVA Solutions today announced its 2010 Technology Award recipients. This annual award program recognizes exemplary technological contributions by associates in OMNOVA's research and development, sales and marketing, technical service, operations, product management, LEAN SixSigma and strategic sourcing organizations.

These technological innovations in new product development and process improvements are positively impacting customers in virtually all of OMNOVA's served markets including performance chemicals for paper, carpet and coatings applications, as well as recycled films used for commercial and industrial end uses, laminates for the healthcare market and specialty commercial wallcoverings.

Recipients hail from across OMNOVA's global operations, including its Performance Chemicals business segment facilities in Akron, Ohio; Mogadore, Ohio; Calhoun, Georgia; and Green Bay, Wisconsin, as well as the Company's newly acquired chemical facilities in Villejust and Le Havre, France. OMNOVA's Decorative Products business segment is also well represented with Technology Award winners from its plants in Jeannette and Auburn, Pennsylvania; and Columbus, Mississippi.  

"As a more global company, these innovations enable us to distinguish ourselves in the markets in which we serve," said Kevin McMullen, OMNOVA Solutions' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are better positioned to realize opportunities in new and adjacent markets through the enhancement of our existing competencies, as well as developing new, sustainable offerings for the future. These innovation teams have clearly focused on delivering value to our customers and enhancing our operations."
