Polymers Center of Excellence

Charlotte,  NC

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.
