Effective April 30, Covestro will cease its cooperation with the previous sales partner Univar France. “We would like to express our appreciation of the longstanding relationship that lasted more than 20 years,” says Hans-Joachim Wittig, Vice President Distribution in Covestro’s Coatings, Adhesives and Specialties Business Unit.

The combination of Covestro’s innovation strength, state-of-the-art product quality and services with IMCD’s commitment to technically driven sales and customer proximity are a solid foundation for the future partnership and the success of both companies.
