ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands – Arizona Chemical, Jacksonville, FL, has reached an agreement with IMCD Group B.V., Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to further expand the distribution partnership for Arizona’s refinery product lines to the African continent.

This agreement follows the January 2012 announcement whereby Arizona Chemical appointed IMCD Group as its distributor for the refinery product lines in Western Europe. As it is the case for the existing contract, IMCD will assume responsibility for the commercial relationship, technical support and logistics for the customers it serves.

Established in 1930, Arizona Chemical provides natural pine-based materials to customers in many markets including adhesives, inks, coatings, road marking, tires and rubber, personal care, lubricants, fuel additives, mining, and oilfield.
