Melrob has recently become an affiliate of Nordmann, Rassmann GmbH (NRC). The collaboration will enable the partners to react quickly and flexibly to changing customer needs. The Methacrylates Business Line is thus strengthening its position as one of the solutions providers for customers processing methacrylates. Methacrylate-based monomers are components of many products and applications such as coatings, adhesives, and plastics.

On October 1, Melrob and the NRC Group will take over exclusive distribution of standard monomers, specifically:
  • Methyl methacrylate VISIOMER® MMA
  • Methacrylic acid VISIOMER® GMMA 
  • Hydroxy methacrylates VISIOMER® HEMA and VISIOMER® HPMA 
  • Butyl methacrylates VISIOMER® i-BMA and VISIOMER® n-BMA

Reorganization of the Distribution Business

From January 1, 2018 the Melrob-NRC Group will also be distributing the specialty methacrylate monomers from Evonik.

We’re convinced that the reorganization of the distribution business will enable us to respond better to the needs of our customers in Europe and that we will benefit from the long-term experience of Melrob and the NRC Group. With this setup we’re positioning ourselves as a leading solutions provider for methacrylates and, along with our distribution partners are ensuring the best possible support for our customers,” says Hans-Peter Hauck, head of the Methacrylates Business Line.

Melrob has been a reliable distributor for MMA monomers in Great Britain since 1995, and is distinguished by high service orientation and outstanding expertise in technical service. “So the company is exactly the right partner for us. The recent merger with NRC now allows the company to expand its activities to every part of Europe,” added Hauck.

Evonik is a renowned producer of MMA and we are very pleased to continue and extend this successful collaboration,” commented Ian Melluish, Managing Director of Melrob. “We appreciate the trust Evonik puts in our company and we will live up to the expectations with the help of our expertise and passion,” added Gerd Bergmann, Managing Director of Nordmann, Rassmann GmbH.
