About Us

A Globally Recognized Leader In Polymer Chemistry

Shakespeare® began manufacturing polyamides in the 1960s for internal use in technical monofilament applications. After successfully resolving common challenges in the processing ability and performance deficiency of readily available polyamides, the company strategy evolved from only supporting internal production needs to developing a polymer business platform serving the needs of both internal and external polymer demands. Through multiple investments in technology, production assets, and an expanded R&D department, Shakespeare® has positioned itself as a leading producer of high performance polyamides while delivering best-in-class service to customers worldwide.

Shakespeare® Company LLC, a subsidiary of Newell Brands, is headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina (USA).
