Perstorp, Sweden -- Speciality chemicals company Perstorp has said that following an overall review of the group's use of sales channels, it has agreed upon an extended collaboration between Perstorp and the Barentz Group during the third quarter 2012.
As of October 2012, the Barentz Group will be responsible for distributing a wider range of Perstorp's products including the range of caprolactones, polyalcohols, and speciality polymers. These products are mainly aimed at customers in a number of key segments such as adhesives, thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs), plastics, and resins and coatings, Perstorp said in a 27 Sept news release.
This collaboration is an extension to the previous arrangements Perstorp has had with Barentz for selected product groups.
"We see natural synergy between Perstorp and the Barentz Group for distributing specialty chemicals in the Benelux market. Our focus to develop the specialties range is best supported by a local partner with the ability to understand customer requirements, as well as our product specifics to enable future development. Barentz's track record has given us the confidence to extend our collaboration for the years to come," commented Per Westberg.
