Velox is intensifying its activities in Eastern Europe and Russia and will exhibit at Plastpol on 22-25 May 2018 in Kielce, Poland, alongside long-term partner Lubrizol.
“Velox will present a broad offering of thermoplastics, polymers, additives and composites, as well as paints and coatings products designed for a wide range of applications,” reports Guillaume Fromont, Product Manager Engineering Plastics. “In particular, the speciality thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) products from our principal Lubrizol, under globally recognised trade names including Estane, Pearlthane and Pearlbond TPU, are of great interest for injection moulding, extrusion, adhesive and compounding applications. These are valued for their durability and mechanical properties in hose and tube, cable and medical device end uses.”
Velox has been present in Eastern Europe for more than 10 years and is strengthening its activities in these markets. The company operates local offices and sales networks in Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary, and established its Russian office in Moscow in April 2017. From here, Velox also serves the markets in Belarus and Ukraine.
“We are looking forward to propelling our sales in Eastern Europe and Russia, which are important markets for plastics and composites,” comments François Minec, General Manager at Velox. “Our local teams have an extensive experience in the chemical industry and a very good knowledge of the respective markets. We are looking forward to supporting our Eastern European customers with our high-quality solutions especially customised to their needs.”
