Venue: Polymers Center Campus
The Polymers Center of Excellence is a not-for-profit 501(c)6 organization created by the state of North Carolina to increase knowledge, provide technical support, and assist in the development of emerging technologies in the plastics industry.
The Polymer Center was founded in 1972 when the State of North Carolina funded plastics specialists in the Industrial Extension Service program at UNCC. The center, located at that time on the UNCC campus, expanded in 1994 when a joint venture was entered into with NCSU to form PEP (Polymers Extension Program). By 1999, PEP moved off of the UNCC campus and became today’s Polymers Center of Excellence (PCE). In 2012, Polymers Technology Center (PTC) was added for small scale production. Since then, the Polymers Center has continued to impact economic development through education, research and development, and trial production.
