Univar Solutions LLC is expanding its partnership with Dow to distribute construction silicone products in various regions of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Specifically, CEE countries in the partnership include Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. The partnership will give customers in the region access to a broader range of essential construction silicone products. These products offer enhanced protection to different substrates and building materials, helping maximize substrate life, minimize costly and time-consuming maintenance and repairs, and improve aesthetic appeal overall.

"We are excited about the new opportunities that will arise as we continue deepening our partnership with Dow and grow our portfolio of silicone products that are critical to the construction market," said Matthew Oliver, global vice president of Performance Materials for Univar Solutions. "Our collaboration over many years has been a cornerstone of our success, and we are proud to continue working together to develop more sustainable, innovative solutions that meet the growing needs of the construction market. With Dow's expertise and our commitment to excellence, we are confident that this partnership will continue to drive growth and create value for our Central and Eastern European customers."
