Omya and Arkema have entered into an exclusive pan-European distribution agreement
Omya, a provider and distributor of specialty chemicals, and Arkema, a global chemical company, have entered into an exclusive pan-European distribution agreement.
Under the agreement, Omya will market Arkema's impact modifier and processing aid solutions, namely Plastistrength, Durastrength, Clearstrength and Biostrength, across Europe, with the exception of Spain and Portugal.
The agreement, says the companies, is based on “genuine synergy” that will enable Omya to leverage its distribution network in Europe, bringing “extensive business opportunities” for Arkema and enable the provision of a complete plastic additives range to its clients.
“This distribution agreement fits perfectly with our long-term development strategy for Plastic Additives in Europe,” commented Martin Burki, Arkema’s Plastic Additives Commercial Director. “We are excited by the many synergies that will emerge from our two companies’ combined know-how.”
