Polymershapes has begun operating as a standalone company after its previous owners, SABIC, sold the business unit to Illinois-based investment group Blackfriars. SABIC acquired the unit from General Electric in 2007, with a reported $11.6 billion transaction.

Polymershapes, a distributor of plastic sheet, rod, tube, and film products, will operate from its headquarters in Huntersville, North Carolina, under the leadership of its new president, Kevin Short.

Short brings 12-plus years of experience working at Blackfriars and as a former president of the International Association of Plastics Distributors. The existing Polymershapes leadership team will stay on, as well.
