Johnson Controls and Polymer Group Announce Strategic Partnership to Develop Headliners and Interior Components
Relationship joins leading companies to produce fiber-based interior products
PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Leading automotive interior systems supplier Johnson Controls, Inc. and Polymer Group, Inc. announced that they have entered into a mutually exclusive strategic supplier partnership.

The Polymer Group will work with Johnson Controls to develop and supply a variety of fiber-based products for headliners and other interior components, augmenting Johnson Controls' current offering for headliners and other interior components. Automakers and consumers will benefit through improved acoustical properties, lower interior vehicle noise and enhanced aesthetics.

"The Polymer Group's unmatched reputation for innovation and manufacturing excellence - coupled with its outstanding technological capabilities – made this partnership a natural fit," said Bob Stander, vice president and general manager - product and business development, overhead systems for Johnson Controls. "As a result of this partnership, our customers will not only benefit from Johnson Controls' vehicle interior integration experience, but also from the Polymer Group's APEX(TM) technologies and their experience in nonwovens and engineered materials."
