Biesterfeld has expanded a contract to distribute polyurethane additives from Evonik.
The agreement covers Germany, Austria, Switzerland, eastern Europe and Russia.
The new agreement covers all of the former Air Products PU additives range. It includes new products for Biesterfeld: Tegostab stabilisers, Ortegol, Kosmos and Tegocolor products.
‘The new agreement with Evonik builds on the 30-year long agreement with Air Products,’ said said Henning Hermann, market manager for polyurethane at Biesterfeld.
Evonik bought Air Products’ polyurethane catalysts business in 2017. The purchase expanded Evonik’s polyurethane additives business and it made the business more complex, said Thomas Faenger, Vice President for EMEA of Evonik’s Comfort & Insulation business segment.
Biesterfeld gives Evonik a partner with ‘close customer proximity, good levels of application-specific consulting and outstanding logistics’, Faenger said.
