HOUSTON (ICIS)--US polymer materials firm PolyOne said on Tuesday it will further realign the North American assets acquired last year following the takeover of plastic sheet, compounds and packing solutions producer Spartech.

PolyOne said the acquired assets, which are primarily located in Ramos, Mexico, would now operate within its Seabrook, Texas-headquartered Performance Products and Solutions (PP&S) segment.

An administrative office in Pennsylvania would be closed with work transitioned to Seabrook, the company said.

"Under the leadership of our Producer Services team located in Texas, we look forward to expanding our capabilities in Mexico with improved customer service, quality and delivery," said PolyOne chief operating officer Robert Patterson.

PolyOne previously announced the closure of six plants it acquired after the acquisition of Spartech in March 2013.
