Leverkusen, Germany -- Bayer MaterialScience has added distributor Mito polimeri srl to sell its high-performance plastics in Italy. Mito will distribute materials previously handled by Bayer MaterialScience's long-standing partners Mercatali srl (since 1973) and Mida srl (since 1978).
Mito will primarily sell the two thermoplastic polyurethanes Desmopan and Texin, as well as the polycarbonate and PC blends Makrolon, Apec (PC-HT), Bayblend (PC/ABS), Makroblend (PC/PBT), said a 25 March BMS statement.
This statement noted that. "Italy is an attractive market for a number of segments, including automotive and electronic articles, plus household goods, sports and leisure products and consumer goods." Bayer MaterialScience said it considers the partnership with Mito polimeri srl "a key factor for its long-term success in these markets."
The products will continue to be distributed directly in Italy, and existing distribution partnerships will remain intact.
