PORT NECHES, Texas—Lion Elastomers will add to its existing sales partnership with Akron-based T.L. Squire and Co. for distribution of Lion's Hot SBR materials, used primarily in the coatings, adhesives and sealant markets.
The newly expanded partnership, disclosed Dec. 16, will take effect Dec. 30 and involves all products sold in the U.S. and Canada, Lion Elastomers said.
"We have had great success working with T. L. Squire, and we are looking forward to enhancing our partnership," said Bobby Rikhoff, vice president of SBR at Lion Elastomers. "By adding our Hot SBR products to our sales partnership agreement, we intend to increase our specialty polymers' presence in the CASE market by providing customers with the best polymer solutions possible."
T. L. Squire distributes elastomers to the synthetic rubber industry and first began partnering with Lion for Lion's cold emulsion SBR and Royalene EPDM product lines, also within the U.S. and North America.
