Scigrip has extended its relationship with Euroresins International Group into Scandinavia. Following a successful collaboration in the UK market, Euroresins now represents Scigrip as a distributor in Norway, Sweden and Finland.
According to Scigrip, the Euroresins team has an excellent reputation and strong sales presence in the region, and will be tasked with growing the Scigrip adhesives reach and raising awareness of the brand and product range. Whilst focusing initially on the SG230 and SG300 ranges, the team has access to the full portfolio of Scigrip products.
The SG230 and SG300 ranges comprise high performance methacrylate adhesives. The SG230s are said to be ideal for bonding composites, gel-coated surfaces and thermoplastics with little or no surface preparation, and have excellent fatigue, impact and shock resistance. The SG300s balance strength with toughness and are suitable for bonding a range of metals, composites and thermoplastics.
The Euroresins team is supported by a comprehensive training and coaching programme run by Scigrip, including in-depth technical training in the laboratory.
“We are thrilled to be extending our partnership with Euroresins into Scandinavia,” says Chris Coll, Business Development Manager – Scigrip. “We are impressed with the enthusiasm, knowledge and technical competence of the team, and we look forward to a bright future working together.”
“The Euroresins group with more than 50 years of experience in the composites market and in continuous evolution is pleased to provide the most innovative solutions supported by our premium suppliers as Scigrip,” states Esther Jiménez, Marketing and Communication Manager, Euroresins Group.
