Dilutec has signed an agreement with Percilglass for exclusive distribution of its gel-coat products in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.
The agreement includes the entire Dilutec product line of more than 20 different types of gel-coat, which is manufactured in Senador Canedo, in the Brazilian state of Goiás.
“We had been searching for an influential distributor in São Paulo that had good market penetration not only in the commodities, but in the specialities segment as well, and that is the case with Percilglass,” says Marcos Pannellini, Commercial Manager of Dilutec.
Another factor that played a role in the choice was Percilglass’ technical approach to the market, adds Pannellini.
“It is a significant advantage when it comes to the distribution of chemical products," he says. "The professionals at Percilglass are very experienced and well prepared to meet the needs of customers and recommend the best type of gel-coat they should use.”
Founded in 1996, Percilglass' customer portfolio is made up predominantly of companies from the civil construction, boating and artisanal industries, and 70% of all sales are concentrated in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.
