Sicomin has agreed a distribution partnership with Aerontec, a South African composite materials supplier based in Cape Town.
The arrangement is effective immediately and Sicomin products will be available throughout South Africa as soon as July. According to Sicomin, customers will benefit from rapid access to its epoxy systems including the GreenPoxy bio range, clear, infusion, foaming and fire retardant products.
Sicomin will initially target the boat building sectors.
“We are confident Aerontec’s superb sales experience in the region combined with a prompt and reliable distribution service will appeal to many marine manufacturers,” comments Philippe Marcovich, Sicomin’s President.
To further strengthen Sicomin’s presence in Southern Africa and overall expansion of its global network, both companies will participate in the South African Collaboration Incoming Trade Mission on 27-30 June 2017. 11 French maritime companies, including component and boat manufacturers, will attend with the aim of generating business and investment opportunities with South African companies in the form of partnerships, joint ventures and sales. Organised by French government agency Business France, the three-day visit will include a tour of a local shipyard and presentations from SABBEX (South African Boat Builders Export Council).
