COLUMBUS, OH – Momentive Performance Materials Holdings Inc., the parent company of Momentive Performance Materials Inc., and Hexion LLC, the parent company of Hexion Specialty Chemicals Inc., have completed the previously announced combination of Hexion and Momentive, creating a global leader in specialty chemicals and materials.
The combination creates an entity with 117 production facilities, more than 10,000 associates, pro forma annualized sales of approximately $7.5 billion and proforma adjusted EBITDA of $1.24 billion.

“Our new, combined enterprise now can offer a broader portfolio of specialty technologies and products to meet the diverse applications needs of our global customers,” said Chairman and CEO Craig O. Morrison. “These technologies include silicones, epoxies, quartz, phenolics, acrylics, aminos, Versatic™ acids, and others that are used alone, or in combination, across thousands of critical industrial and consumer applications where superior performance is required. In addition, as we look across our complementary technology platform, we see tremendous growth potential for bringing new products to market.”
The combined companies will operate under the Momentive name and are introducing a new logo designed to create a bold new look for the enterprise. The new Momentive is headquartered in Columbus, OH. Its Silicones and Quartz business is headquartered in Albany, NY.
