Brazilian distributor Redelease and UK producer of semi-permanent mould release agents Marbocote have announced the creation of a joint venture.
Based in São Paulo, Redelease-Marbocote will target the composites, rubber, polyurethane and other markets.
Redelease started distributing Marbocote’s semi-permanent mould release agents in 2016.
“We added to our portfolio internationally renowned products, which have had excellent acceptance in the local market,” says Roberto Iacovella, Managing Partner of Redelease. “In addition, Marbocote developed unique formulations to meet the needs of Brazilian customers. The partnership was so successful that we have now decided to create this joint venture.”
Ana Clara Cordeiro has been hired as the Sales Director of Redelease-Marbocote.
“The combination of Redelease’s agility and dedication to serve its customers with the technical quality of Marbocote brand motivated me to be part of the team,” she says.
In the Brazilian composites sector, Redelease-Marbocote already has a very well-established position, according to Ana Clara Cordeiro.
“In the rubber and tires segments, we are growing day by day," she adds. "Customers have tested our products and proven their exceptional quality. In parallel, we rely on a very effective technical group, which helps us focus on building customer loyalty. Our ‘super durable’ products surprise most customers because they ensure higher productivity, are easy to apply and have competitive prices."
