Michelman & Safic-Alcan Extend Distribution Agreement to Central Europe

Michelman has extended its distribution agreement with Safic-Alcan, an international specialty chemicals distributor, to Central Europe, Poland, and Turkey.  Capitalizing on the success that Safic-Alcan has had in France and the United Kingdom distributing their broad range of coating additives, surface modifiers, and paper & packaging coating solutions, Michelman will now have them manage their distribution throughout Safic-Alcan subsidiaries located in Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia, and Turkey.

“We are happy to have been selected by Michelman for distributing their products on these high potential markets because Michelman is a key player in the coatings and specialty chemicals industry,” stated Philippe Combette, CEO of Safic-Alcan. “Michelman’s product portfolio will offer our customers a variety of performance properties as well as opportunities in formulating, designing and processing innovative and sustainable products.”

“Safic-Alcan is well known for its high quality of service and strong technical support and we are excited to extend our partnership to include the Central European market and Turkey. This initiative will enable us to enhance our presence in this region.” added Paul Griffith, Chief Marketing Officer, VP & Managing Director EMEA, Michelman International SARL.
