Thermoset customers in France, Italy, the UK and Ireland will have improved access to products from Nouryon through an expanded partnership with distributor Gazechim Group.
Under the agreement, Gazechim will distribute Nouryon’s complete portfolio of organic peroxides and auxiliaries for the thermoset business, which are important in the production of composite products as diverse as sports and leisure to automotive, aerospace, and energy. Besides working together in technical and safety support for customers, Gazechim and Nouryon experts will also jointly develop new projects and commercial opportunities. Gazechim has been distributing Nouryon’s products in Germany, Spain, Benelux and most Nordic countries since 2012. The expanded partnership will take effect 1 September 2019.
“This agreement is an important step to better serve our customers,” said Johan Landfors, Managing Director Polymer Chemistry at Nouryon. “Gazechim is the largest distributor of thermoset products in Europe, and we believe the new partnership will help strengthen customer relationships and accelerate our growth in key markets.”
Jean-Mark Libes at Gazechim said: “We have a strong reputation in the thermoset market, and we seek partnerships with strong organizations like Nouryon to build on our value proposition and continue to grow our business.”
