Univar Announces European Coatings Lab

Univar has announced plans for a European coatings laboratory, to be established by upgrading and extending the services, scope and reach of the company’s existing UK facility in Middlesbrough. In the new laboratory, technicians will create product concept samples for customers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), with ingredients from the company’s coatings product portfolio. Technicians will also evaluate raw materials, test specific coating-related problems and enable customers to see products in their finished state ahead of full production. These services will significantly cut testing and product development time for customers and enable them to develop the optimal product mix, saving time and money.

“The launch of the new European coatings laboratory enables Univar to differentiate itself from other distributors and provide an increasingly important and tailored service,” said Sergio de Sola, Sales and Marketing manager for Univar’s Coatings business in EMEA. “The fact that all major testing can be done within this single facility means Univar is not only a key source for coatings products, but also an expert in customized coatings formulations, thus providing value and quality to all our customers.”
