Multisol and Brenntag UK & Ireland announce new distribution agreement with Nynas AB for packed products in the UK and Ireland
Multisol Ltd and Brenntag UK & Ireland, both part of Brenntag Group, the global market leader in chemical distribution, announce that from May 1st, 2015 they will distribute packed (drums and IBCs) naphthenic process oils and base oils from Nynas AB in the UK and Ireland.
Simon Brander, Commercial Director, Multisol Ltd. adds, “Naphthenic base oils have been a gap in our portfolio that we have been looking to fill for some time. I am delighted that through the acquisition of Multisol by Brenntag in 2011 we can offer Nynas not only our Lubricant market expertise but also access to the wider process oil market through the network of Brenntag Group in the UK and Ireland. With Nynas entering an exciting phase of growth and expansion this is a great opportunity for Multisol and Brenntag to continue to develop our business in this area.”
Nicola Boulter, Commercial Director – Specialities, Brenntag UK & Ireland comments, “The Nynas product portfolio is an important addition to Brenntag’s speciality product offering across all market sectors. We value the breadth of their product range and the extensive technical knowledge and insight that they can offer customers to address real life situations. Indeed, Brenntag and Multisol keenly understand the importance of product innovation in meeting rapidly evolving demands from both customers and legislative bodies.”
Rafael Renaudeau, Area General Manager Western Europe – Nynas, states, “As Nynas is expanding its production capacities at a time when so much is happening in the base and process oil markets with, for example, the closure of group I refineries on the continent, we are delighted to embark upon this new relationship with Brenntag and Multisol in the UK and republic of Ireland. The partnership will allow Nynas to focus on bulk customers while Brenntag and Multisol will service and grow our speciality naphthenic oil sales in drums and IBCs across a wide range of end market sectors for which they are excellently positioned. Brenntag will promote our products into a diverse range of markets such as the rubber, plastics, printing inks and adhesives sectors, whilst Multisol will service the grease and lubricant sectors”.
