Brenntag recently announced the renewal and expansion of a distribution agreement with SI Group. Brenntag has been distributing SI Group’s plastics solutions products in Europe and Africa; the expanded contract, which is effective immediately, includes chemical intermediates and coatings resins for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.
“We are thrilled to add SI Group’s performance chemicals and coating resins products to our portfolio as it enables us to offer a more differentiated range of solutions to our Chemical Intermediates and Coatings customers,” said Sara Ghione, director, Polymers EMEA Brenntag Specialties. “Additionally, it further extends our longstanding and successful partnership with SI Group with the aim to grow together even further.”
SI Group’s plastics solutions products reportedly protect polymers against degradation and aging and thus help to extend the functional life of the final product. The company’s coating resins are used for protective coatings in markets such as metal coating applications, can and beverage packaging, decorative paints, and road markings. The company’s portfolio of performance intermediates are building blocks into chemistries used in a wide range of markets, including surfactants, personal care, agriculture, plastics, and engineering plastics.
“Brenntag is a distribution partner of choice,” said Joey Gullion, senior vice president and chief commercial officer at SI Group. “They have a strong regional footprint combined with robust customer relationships. In addition to providing high-quality, innovative products, SI Group continuously seeks to improve the service level we provide and we’re confident that together with Brenntag we will captivate new customers.”
