Univar Expands Distribution Agreement with Dow Corning Coatings

July 6, 2011

Univar Inc. recently announced it has expanded its European distribution agreement with Dow Corning Coatings (DCC) to include Austria, Turkey, the Baltic region, central and eastern Europe (CEE), and South Africa. Univar has been distributing DCC’s products in most of eastern Europe for more than 20 years. DCC’s range is based mainly around silicone additives and binders, which have applications in industrial paints, inks, varnishes and decorative paints.

“We are very pleased to be growing our long-standing and successful relationship with Univar to include these new territories,” said Chris Wall, Coatings Major Market leader for Dow Corning Europe. “As well as their deep understanding of our products and markets, Univar’s new coatings laboratory and their on-the-ground presence in key areas like the Baltic region and, following their acquisition of BCS and ERAL-PROTEK, Turkey and South Africa, presented a very compelling proposition.”
