BOULDER, Colo.—Swan Chemical Inc., a U.S. subsidiary of Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd, has signed a distribution partnership with Boulder-based manufacturer of recovered carbon black, Bolder Industries.
The deal will cover the sales and distribution of BolderBlack-branded rCB, produced from end-of-life tires, in the North America region, Swan Chemical said in a statement.
Ray Fahmy, president of Swan Chemical, said the rCB product offered significant value in terms of cost stability, and environmental credits that enable customers to meet their sustainability targets.
Swan Chemical specializes in the industrial rubber goods market segment.
"We are always looking for like-minded strategic partners who expand our customer support and service model," Bolder Industries CEO Tony Wibbeler said, noting that the the two companies have "tremendous overlap within the tire and rubber industry, similar growth strategies, and a common view on sustainability."
