Engineered for Tomorrow
SWM is a leading global provider of engineered solutions and advanced materials. From our origins as paper-making experts during the Renaissance to our cutting-edge technologies that solve today's modern business challenges, SWM has consistently demonstrated a forward-looking approach to helping our customers succeed. Our history of performance is thanks in large part to our fundamental manufacturing expertise of roll goods and our deep understanding of the industries we serve.
In recent years, as we focused on expanding our reach beyond fiber-based materials, SWM established and grew its Advanced Materials & Structures (AMS) platform to include expertise and capabilities in resin-based technologies and materials. As part of this effort, SWM acquired and integrated several global leaders specializing in market-leading netting and high-performance TPU films. One of these, Argotec, has been the premier extruder of TPU optical interlayers, supplying over 50% of the world's total usage. SWM will use its far greater resources to continue to drive growth and develop new glass lamination products.
Today, SWM has the cleanest, most modern interlayer film extrusion operation in North America. With decades of success behind us and an ambitious future ahead, now more than ever, our global enterprise is engineered for tomorrow.
