Safic-Alcan Extends Tronox Agreement
PARIS-LA DÉFENSE, France – Specialty chemicals distributor Safic-Alcan has extended its exclusive distribution agreement with TRONOX for the whole ranges of TiONA® TiO2 pigments in Benelux and Turkey, effective April 1, 2020, and May 1, 2020, respectively.
Recognized globally, TiONA titanium dioxide pigments have been used for many decades by coatings, inks, plastics, rubber, paper and other manufacturers for their high-performance benefit.
This new agreement further strengthens Safic-Alcan’s reputation as a key distributor of titanium dioxide pigments, and extends the partnership already announced for France. It builds on the longstanding partnership between Safic-Alcan and Tronox, which started back in the 1980s and is confirmed today with the recent acquisition of Cristal, the Saudi based leading producer of titanium chemical, by Tronox.
“We are proud of this extended agreement with Tronox, a leading producer of TiO2, and look forward to further develop the business across Europe and Turkey. TiONA TiO2 pigments offer the best-in-class quality and performance to our pan European customers who have an important demand for such high-quality products,” said Philippe Combette, CEO of Safic-Alcan.
