Mike Goodhew, Cornelius' Business Manager.
Independent European distributor of innovative raw materials to the industrial sector, Cornelius Group, has been chosen as the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for coloured pigments, dispersions and driers from global chemicals manufacturer, Huntsman.
The appointment has seen Cornelius gain in excess of 100 new customers and enables the distributor to manage all distribution business for Huntsman Iron Oxide, Chrome Oxide Green, Colourplex, Solaplex, Cadmium Pigments, Tintersol, Timbasol, Durham and Nuodex Driers, and Exkin anti-skinning agents.
The products are used in a variety of industrial applications including coatings, plastics, adhesives and sealants.
Huntsman has restructured its routes to market following the acquisition of the colour pigments and driers business from Rockwood in 2014. Part of this restructuring has been the decision to work closer with Cornelius in the UK and Eire markets.
“The appointment by Huntsman has allowed us to broaden and enhance our customer base significantly and we are extremely proud to be able to expand the portfolio of products we offer to customers across the UK and in Ireland,” commented Mike Goodhew, Cornelius’ Business Manager.
“We are thrilled by the opportunities our partnership with Huntsman presents and look forward to playing an integral role in helping them to achieve their commercial business objectives as well as enhancing the reputation of Cornelius within the industrial sector even further.”
