Returning to Fakuma allows us to show customers how we have executed on our strategy of being a global, diversified and reliable partner,” said Isaac Khalil, senior vice president of polyamides at Ascend. “We have invested heavily in technical resources, our products and our operations, and we have innovated new, higher-performance materials to allow our customers to be more competitive in new technologies.”

Ascend is committed to working with customers to innovate sustainable solutions, including product environmental impacts, new applications and greenhouse gas emissions. The company announced an 80% GHG emissions reduction by 2030 in its latest sustainability report.
