About Lucite International

Together we are shaping a lighter, brighter future – everywhere

Lucite International is a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of acrylic-based products. With manufacturing, sales and distribution capabilities across EMEA, The Americas and Asia Pacific, we are the energy and driving force behind some of the world’s best known branded acrylic products, which make a significant contribution to a wide range of growing sectors and geographic markets.

For over 75 years, Lucite International has been focused on the methacrylate molecule, the building block of the material acrylic which most of us are familiar with. Our award-winning organisation is justly proud of its ICI and Dupont innovation-led heritage. Today, as part of the global Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, we are a world leader developing innovations and processes that are changing the world in which we live. Acrylic is a material that fascinates and inspires us. It has wonderful and varied properties – it’s light-weight, durable, holds colour, transmits light and creates brightness. It helps products last longer and work better. It’s everywhere in almost everything you can think of.

Imperceptibly but immeasurably, methacrylates add something quite special to our lives. As a business we make the world lighter, brighter, everywhere.
