Kommerling uses Solvochem’s JAFZA warehouse for GCC expansion
Kommerling UK has appointed Solvochem in Jebel Ali as the distributor for its Cilbond range of rubber to metal bonding agents in the GCC.
The agreement came into force at the start of the year and Solvochem will initially supply Cilbond to existing end-users in the UAE, and then explore and support new opportunities throughout the GCC region.
Kommerling UK will make use of Solvochem’s state-of-the-art warehouse and drumming facility in Jebel Ali, where they will stock and distribute the Cilbond grades.
The company will be working with any organisations that are bonding rubber and polyurethane to different substrates, including producers of rollers, bridge bearings, anti-vibration parts and industrial tank linings.
“We are delighted to have secured this distributor agreement with Kommerling,” said Tony Jouzy, managing director at Solvochem. “Their products are of the highest quality and we look forward to working with them to maximise the opportunities that exist in our region.”
“Solvochem has established itself as a key player in this market and this is the first step on what we hope will be a long and fruitful partnership. Working with Solvochem gives Kommerling and the Cilbond products a truly local presence, which will be key to our plans to expand sales to other GCC countries,” said Marcus Hunter, business development manager at Kommerling UK.
