New European distributor Agreements for Ashland

11 March 2008

Ashland Composite Polymers has two new distribution agreements in Europe for Derakane epoxy vinyl ester resins.

The agreements, which go into effect March 15, are with T&T Metalli e Compositi in Italy, and Romar-Voss in the Benelux (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxemburg) market. The move replaces the current distributor for Derakane resins in those regions. These agreements extend the existing relationships between Ashland, T&T Metalli e Compositi and Romar-Voss, which currently serve composite fabricators in their respective regions as distributors for Ashland’s full line of polyester, vinyl ester, acrylic and phenolic resins, premium gelcoats, and low-profile additives.

“We are very pleased to expand our product portfolio with T&T and Romar-Voss to include our industry-leading corrosion- and fire-resistant Derakane resin technology,” said Stefan Osterwind, commercial director, Europe, Ashland Composite Polymers. “In addition to their proven logistics capabilities in their regions and experience in the European composites market, T&T and Romar-Voss both share Ashland’s commitment to delivering technology and service that will drive innovation within the composites industry.”
