SCIGRIP has appointed three new distributors to support its sales presence in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
The company says the addition of Goessl & Pfaff in Germany, Astorit in Switzerland and ASTORplast, Austria, will solidify its position as the leading manufacturer and supplier of structural MMAs and engineering adhesives in Europe.
According to SCIGRIP, Goessl & Pfaff, Astorit and ASTORplast all maintain strong supply links with a variety of industrial sectors including automotive, rail and industrial assembly.
SCIGRIP reports that its distribution network has grown significantly over the past 12 months under the direction of European Sales and Marketing Manager, Tim Johnson.
"We selected these new distributors as they offer highly proficient sales teams and strong technical support functions," states Johnson. "Our business objectives and commitment to adhesive innovation are closely aligned and this equates to a superior customer service experience. We look forward to working with our new partners and to developing the SCIGRIP brand together in Central Europe."
SCIGRIP has devised a comprehensive product training programme for the new distributors. In April, Astorit and ASTORplast participated in application specific training modules led by SCIGRIP's technical team in the UK. This included an overview of the engineering and structural adhesive ranges, adopting best practice for MMA technology and interactive bonding trials.
