New Star Metals Now Material Sciences Corp.

Thursday, December 3, 2015
 
Material Sciences Corp. (MSC) is the new name of New Star Metals, Burr Ridge, IL, which acquired MSC in March 2014. MSC joined several other business units under the New Star Metals umbrella as a global supplier of metal products and processing, engineering services and supply-chain management to customers in the automotive, construction and consumer-products sectors worldwide.
“We are on an aggressive path, going to market as one entity: Material Sciences Corporation,” says Pat Murley, chief executive officer of New Star Metals since the company’s founding, and who assumes the same role at MSC. “When we acquired MSC, we gained access to the knowledge and reputation of this publicly-traded 64-yr.-old company. Before long, we came to the conclusion that the superior brand recognition of Material Sciences Corporation could be applied effectively to the entire family of New Star Metals companies. We have more value to offer under the MSC banner, gaining access to new product applications and outstanding growth opportunities in North America and globally.”
Three MSC business units have joined the original New Star Metals entities: Canfield Coating Co., Electric Coating Technologies, Premier Resource Group and World Class Corrugating.
