Spheretex has announced the signing of an Exclusive Distribution Agreement for USA and Canada with Carbon-Core Corp. of Ruckersville, Virginia, US.
Carbon-Core, headquartered in Ruckersville, VA, US, states it will leverage its sales and marketing experience, and distribution capabilities within North America to establish Spheretex as a preferred vendor of laminate bulkers and volumised reinforcement materials.
The company explains that under the terms of the agreement, Carbon-Core will also provide service, training and technical support for Spheretex North American customers. To ensure availability and reduce transit time, Spheretex America will relocate its warehousing operations from Florida to Virginia, from where 80% of US can be serviced within two days.
Siegfried Gerhards, CEO and President of Spheretex and Spheretex America stressed how important the North American market is to Spheretex. “We chose Carbon-Core Corp. for their extensive expertise in the core materials industry and for their ability to provide a broad range of products as well as technical and application support to their customers. Plus Carbon-Core is well known throughout North America for offering a competitive range of core materials. The Spheretex technical core material products are an ideal fit with the other core material Carbon-Core Corp. produces or distributes, such as structural plastic honeycomb, lightweight panels, PVC, PIR, PE foams.”
“This agreement with Spheretex represents a major commitment to our structural core materials business,” said Jack Lugus, Managing Director of Carbon-Core “We are now able to offer an even wider range of innovative products to our customers. Spheretex’ products for contact and closed molding have an excellent reputation all over the world.”
