I'll describe a family of algebras called shifted Yangians, which arise as deformation quantizations of certain spaces related to loop groups.  I'll also describe coproducts for these algebras, which are related to multiplication in the loop group.  Physically, this fits into the story of Coulomb branches associated to 3d N=4 quiver gauge theories, where the above multiplication maps arises by taking products of scattering matrices.
