KODA Distribution Group recently announced it has completed the acquisition of E.W. Kaufmann. As a result, Lonza Materials Protection will now offer a more broad distribution arrangement with the KODA Distribution Group in the U.S.

“We are pleased that KODA has expanded its distribution network to encompass E.W. Kaufmann,” said Julie Gallucci, head of NAFTA for Lonza Materials Protection. “All five companies within the KODA Group offer our shared customers deep technical expertise and market knowledge, making them an excellent partner.”

Under the newly expanded scope of the KODA Group, E.W. Kaufmann will represent Lonza in the CASE market in the Northeast, while another KODA company, Monson, will represent Lonza in the metalworking fluid markets throughout the U.S. Monson will transition its Lonza CASE accounts to E.W. Kaufmann as of September 1.
