MIDLAND, Mich.—Dow named Univar Inc. as a North American distributor for its polyols and isocyanates product portfolio.
Univar, a chemical and ingredient solutions provider created recently from the combination of Univar and Nexeo Solutions, will serve as an authorized channel for Dow's polyurethane products across the U.S. and Canada.
"The power of Dow's wide ranging solution sets paired with the customer experience that Univar Solutions offers, is the collaboration needed to help downstream formulators innovate and grow," Caio Sedeno, North America commercial director for Dow Polyurethanes, said in a statement. "In CASE formulations, we have a broad range of polyols, formulated polyol blends and pre-polymer offerings that will help deliver on ever-advancing application needs."
Both Univar and Dow are completing recent merger and acquisition transactions, but Dow notes that the two share priorities to offer solutions and experiences that drive value for their customers.
"Combining the product and innovation breadth of Dow with Univar Solutions' formulation expertise in our Technical Solution Centers, as well as through the digital tools that we deploy, will be a winning, value creating partnership for the industry," Mark Fisher, president of Univar Solutions USA, said in a statement.
