Our company name is based on a real word—'axial'—meaning: relating to, characterized by, or forming an axis. It's also a word with a history of use in chemistry (axial bonds, axial flow) and construction (axial plans, axial orientation)—our core businesses.
The name Axiall expresses the essence of our business strategy in a unique, memorable way. It references two axes: the vertical axis, along which core material production is integrated with finished products; and the horizontal axis, which represents the diversity of our businesses and opportunities for further expansion.
The meaning, in turn, inspired the tagline: 'at the intersection of chemistry and progress,' which expresses our larger corporate aspirations to enhance life through applied chemistry.
