Hercules assigns new name to Rosin and Terpene divisions

Published on 2002-11-20. Author : SpecialChem


Hercules Inc. has given a new name-Pinova-to its Rosin and Terpene Specialties Division. The business was separated in 2001 from the company's Resins Division, portions of which were divested by Hercules. The Pinova unit develops, manufactures, and is a supplier of rosin and terpene chemical for use in numerous industries worldwide. This is an industry pioneer and the oldest business within Hercules, dating to 1920.

The name Pinova was adopted in 2002 to reflect the legacy in pine chemistry, a new energy for growth, and the commitment to providing innovative solutions to customers. Pinova business director W.L. "Lin" Godsey said the new identity reflects "our reenergized commitment to the many global markets that we serve."
