DOWNERS GROVE, IL/BUFFALO GROVE, IL – ANGUS Chemical Co. and Univar USA Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Univar Inc., have entered into a new distribution agreement effective July 1, 2016. Under the agreement, Univar will distribute ANGUS’ complete line of nitroalkanes and specialty additive products sold into a number of U.S. markets, including paint and coatings, personal care, adhesives and sealants, inks, rubber, oil and gas, water treatment, and household, industrial and institutional cleaning.
The ANGUS product portfolio includes AMP-95® (a powerful, multifunctional, low-VOC specialty chemical that is widely used in paint formulations, metalworking fluids and personal care products) and TRIS AMINO® ULTRA PC (a high-purity, broadly compliant tromethamine for use in cosmetic and personal care formulations, especially skin and sun care).
Univar will become the sole distributor for ANGUS products sold to the markets covered under the agreement following a de-stocking and transition period with ANGUS’ incumbent U.S. distributors. Markets not covered under the agreement, such as metalworking fluids and life sciences, will continue to be serviced by ANGUS and their existing channel partners.
