CAME and Applied Graphene Materials Strengthen Engagement With Italian Coatings Market
REDCAR, UK — Following the signing of a distribution agreement in 2019 with CAME srl in Italy, Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) visited the international chemical distribution business in February 2020. Andy Gent, Commercial Director, and Lynn Chikosha, Coatings Development Manager, met with Verena Cepperulo, General Manager with CAME and her team. The weeklong visit in February saw CAME arrange several new customer meetings from the coatings, adhesives and lubricants markets. Discussions focused around the progress CAME and its customers are making with graphene additives.
Chikosha commented on the visit, “We reviewed AGM’s latest results in barrier and anticorrosion coatings applications, and with the help of CAME strengthened our engagement with customers from the last visit before engaging with a number of new customers. The team at CAME had lined up some really exciting potential customers where they see alignment with our graphene and its applications. Looking forward to lots of exciting collaborations in the future. As always, the team at CAME were excellent hosts
“I think it is fair to say that the collaboration between AGM and CAME is going from strength to strength. Following the successful launch of our partnership during 2019, we have started 2020 with a huge amount of interest from within the Italian market. Our colleagues at CAME have been able to identify a significant number of exciting project opportunities with a key focus on our graphene’s outstanding barrier properties. I am very much looking forward to seeing how these projects develop,” said Gent.
