MOSCOW (MRC) -- Azelis announces distribution agreement with Imerys Performance Minerals (PARP), a supplier of mineral-based solutions, according to SpecialChem.
Effective immediately, Imerys’ portfolio of mineral fillers for the CASE segment is available to Azelis customers across Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Senegal, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Togo.
The new agreement is a testament to Azelis’ partnership with Imerys, the mandate underscores Azelis’ commitment to organic growth with partners. Reinforcing Azelis’ lateral value chain, with the addition of Imerys’ high-quality products, all performance minerals in the CASE range are now accessible through Azelis.
“We’re delighted to enter into this new partnership with Imerys. Their high-quality performance minerals are fully complementary to our product range, and we look forward to bringing our complete portfolio of CASE performance minerals to the market,” said Frank Bakhuizen, market segment director CASE, EMEA at Azelis.
As MRC reported earlier, in March 2022, Azelis announced the acquisition of 100% of the shares of Whitfield Chemical Group Limited, a well-regarded distributor focused on coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers and rubber & plastic additives in the UK.
We remind that in June 2021, Azelis announced the extension of its distribution scope with CP Kelco in India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. CP Kelco’s product range is a significant addition to Azelis’ portfolio and the new agreement marks an important milestone in the strong and continuously developing collaboration between both companies globally.
Besides, Azelis made two acquisitions in July, 2021, both in South Korea. The most recent agreement, announced on Jul. 14, is the proposed takeover of Seoul-headquartered Coseal, which specializes in the distribution, repackaging and blending of agricultural/horticultural surfactants. This transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2021, when all of Coseal’s 45 employees, along with its owner and CEO Sang Jin Kang, will transfer to the Belgium-based distributor.
Nearly two weeks earlier, on Jul. 1, Azelis revealed it had purchased MH, a local distributor in the food ingredients market, providing the multinational specialty chemicals distribution group with a foothold in the food and health segment. Also headquartered in Seoul, MH is a family-owned business, supplying products such as gluten, starches, sweeteners and functional food ingredients.
