BASF has announced that it has strengthened its ability to meet U.S. customers' lead-times and delivery requirements for Lupranate isocyanates and Pluracol polyols by appointing two regional distributors. Effective immediately, Archway Sales, Inc., St. Louis, MO, and GMZ Inc., West Chester, OH, have been appointed regional distributors for BASF's Urethane Chemicals business unit. "Our customers are demanding just-in-time deliveries with minimal lead times, backed by responsive sales support. To meet these requirements, we have aligned with Archway and GMZ to enhance our sales and logistics support because they both have core strengths in urethane technology and specialty chemicals," said Brian Searfoss, Market Development Manager of BASF's Urethane Chemicals-CASE (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers) business in North America. Archway has assumed responsibility for customers in Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Tennessee, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. GMZ now covers Minnesota, Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Texas and Oklahoma.
