Trinseo is a specialty material solutions provider. A great example of an end-product that is made from Trinseo’s plastics is Lego. To operate manual valves safely and efficiently, Trinseo staff uses the Power Wrench portable actuator. The portable actuator is used during the production process of Ethylbenzene, Styrene, LATEX, ABS, SAN and technical thermoplastics.
Christian Pielaat, Gatekeeper at Trinseo: “To us, safety means that every decision we make, prioritizes safety. This was also the case when we were looking for a solution to avoid the significant physical strength and time that was required when manually operating large 24” valves. The solution we were looking for should enable quick and easy manual valve operation, and had to contribute to reduced EH&S incidents and risks, while maintaining full regulatory compliance at the same time. We succeeded in our mission, and the operations team is now very happy with the Power Wrench. It allows operating these manual valves within minutes, and without any physical strain.”
Trinseo has a long history of more than 70 years of outstanding services at Dow Chemical Company. Since 2010 it has been an independent company, first under the name Styron and from 2015 as Trinseo.

EH&S and ‘Responsible Care’ are their core values and strategic priorities.
