Romulus, Michigan -- BASF Corp. veterans Roger Huarng and Stephane Morin have formed Alliance Polymers & Services llc, a distribution firm offering thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) and other elastomer materials.
The first product distributed by the Romulus, Michigan-based firm is BASF's Elastollan-brand TPU. Both Huarng and Morin worked with that product line during their careers at Florham Park, New Jersey-based BASF.
Alliance aims to supply TPUs and elastomers to small-to-medium-sized designers, marketers and processors, officials said in a 30 Sept news release. The firm opened for business 1 Oct.
The firm also will offer elastomers other than TPU, but no details were provided.
"We can offer any and all products and services offered by major suppliers, but with a personal hands-on touch," officials said in the release.
