Albis has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for Eastman Chemical's complete range of copolyester products in France and Poland. Effective March 1, the new distributorship is a natural extension of the existing relationship with Eastman, said the Hamburg, Germany-based compounder and distributor. Albis has collaborated closely for over 20 years in many other European countries including Germany, UK and Scandinavia.
Eastman's copolyester portfolio comprises products such as The Glass Polymer family of cosmetic materials and its Tritan copolyester range.
Describing Albis as a well-established strategic partner, Eastman said that the appointment served to underline its pan-European distribution strategy – “Allowing us to serve beyond our current reach,” according to Reinier de Graaf, Eastman's regional business director specialty plastics EMEA.
