BRUSSELS, Belgium – Dow Corning Coatings announced it has expanded its distribution agreement with Univar to now include Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq in the Middle East-Africa Region (MEA). 

Dow Corning Coatings has collaborated with Univar for more than 20 years in several Western European countries and in 2011 extended the collaboration to include Austria, Turkey, the Baltic region, Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), and South Africa. 

“We are delighted to extend our cooperation with Univar in these new markets,” said Miki Cuscela, Dow Corning Coatings Account Manager. “Univar has developed a professional team in Europe, working as an integrated unit across borders and aligning with the needs of international and local customers.
