Arizona Chemical to Expand Distribution to Africa

Arizona Chemical recently announced it has reached an agreement with IMCD Group B.V. to further expand the distribution partnership for Arizona’s refinery product lines to the African continent. This agreement follows a recent announcement in which Arizona Chemical appointed IMCD Group as its distributor for refinery product lines in Western Europe. IMCD will assume responsibility for the commercial relationship, technical support and logistics for the customers it serves, reportedly enabling Arizona to focus on understanding customer needs and developing improved solutions to serve them.

“We are delighted that Arizona Chemical has taken the decision to extend their partnership with IMCD to Africa,” said Didrik von Porat, managing director of IMCD Nordic. “Not only will this agreement strengthen our already successful and valuable partnership with Arizona, but it will also allow IMCD to progress in its commitment to develop sales and achieve a more visible presence in Africa.”

“Building on the successful distribution structure for our products in Western Europe, we are confident to add South Africa, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia to the territories that IMCD currently covers for Arizona Chemical. IMCD’s order handling, technical support and attention to consumer needs will allow us to grow further in these markets, and provide enhanced value and support for our customers,” said Juhani Tuovinen, vice president, Global Commercial for Arizona Chemical.
