INEOS Styrolution strengthens distribution structure in EMEA
- Changes affect distribution structure for INEOS Styrolution’s standards business
- Additional distributor signed up in the Iberia region to optimise local market outreach
Frankfurt, February 14, 2019 - INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announces today that a new cooperation has been agreed with Tecnopol in Iberia (Spain, Portugal).
In order to be set up for growth in the Iberia region, INEOS Styrolution agreed on a new cooperation with Tecnopol for its standards business in Spain and Portugal. The new agreement is effective as of the beginning of 2019. INEOS Styrolution and Tecnopol are already looking back at a successful cooperation in Italy for the standard and a selected specialty portfolio. The agreement for Iberia covers INEOS Styrolution’s entire standards business (polystyrene and ABS standard polymers).
Alberto Borio and Giancarlo Rizzi, managing directors at Tecnopol, comment: “We are pleased to expand the cooperation with INEOS Styrolution. The company brings a very strong product portfolio to the market and we are looking forward to growing together based on this new agreement as we did in Italy since 2001.”
Natasza Bil, Senior Distribution Manager at INEOS Styrolution concludes: “Today’s announcement is an extension to the new distribution structure announced a year ago. The new agreement gives us an optimised access to the market in Spain and Portugal and allows addressing new business opportunities for INEOS Styrolution’s standards polymer business.”
The announced changes have no impact on INEOS Styrolution’s specialties business nor do they affect the existing relationships with other distribution partners in the region.
