Azelis extends its partnership with Albemarle across Europe

25 July 2022

Azelis, a leading global innovation service provider in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, is pleased to announce the extension of their mandate with Albemarle Corporation, a global specialty chemicals company with leading positions in lithium, bromine and refining catalysts. Effective immediately, this expansion acknowledges a long-standing partnership in Italy, and strengthens Azelis’ position in the markets of plastics, rubber, coatings and adhesives applications in all EU countries (excluding Iberia and the Baltics), Norway, Switzerland, the UK and Turkey.

This mandate enhances Azelis’ lateral value chain by adding Albemarle’s SAYTEX®️ line to Azelis’ portfolio for the Rubber & Plastic Additives (R&PA) and Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants & Elastomers (CASE) segments, offering industry reference performance in demanding environments which save lives and reduce property damage. Azelis’ long-time success with Albemarle in Italy, along with its pan-European reach and strong compliance structures, were crucial in the decision-making process.

This expanded agreement furthers Azelis’ strategy of organic growth with its partners.

Christian Pflesser, Market Segment Director R&PA, EMEA at Azelis, comments:

“We are delighted to extend our relationship with Albemarle, a recognition of our skills and capabilities to comply with highest requirements. This mandate is an opportunity to bring Albemarle’s Saytex®️ product line to more customers across Europe, strengthening our presence in the R&PA market. It also reinforces our lateral value chain, and we are excited to expand our collaboration with Albemarle across Europe.”

Fabio Giuntoli, Sales Director EU/MEI at Albemarle, states:

“During our partnership so far, Azelis has demonstrated experience and expertise in the promotion and sale of our products, as well as extensive market coverage and established customer base. Their proven strong technical capabilities enable us to offer our customers the best possible service, serve individual customer needs and allow us to consolidate our distribution network at the same time. After many years of successful collaboration with Azelis, we are pleased to continue this alliance on a large European scale.”
