The Japanese Kuraray Group announced it will be going by a new name, Advanced Interlayer Solutions, for the automotive and architecture market segments and more.

“’Advanced’ means not standard, but rather the motivation to improve our own performance to the satisfaction of our customers and to offer them a competitive advantage. ‘Interlayer’ defines the entire business for glass interlayers: Trosifol® PVB, SentryGlas® Ionoplast, and Trosifol® Spallshield® CPET®. ‘Solutions’ stands for problem-solving and innovation – both with products and services,” according to a press release.

In addition to the new name, another department will be joining the Kuraray business. The Innovation Networking Center (INC), which started work at the beginning of the year. According to the company, the  INC aims to drive innovation with global, cross-business and cross-functional teams and close to customers and market needs.
