Azelis, a leading global innovation service provider in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, is proud to announce a new distribution agreement with Sun Chemical, a global leader in inks, coatings, pigments, and advanced materials. Effective from January 1st, 2023, this new mandate allows Azelis to strengthen its portfolio of pigment products in the coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers (CASE) and advanced materials & additives (AM&A) markets in France and Benelux. The agreement includes the pigment portfolio that Sun Chemical acquired from BASF in 2021.

This mandate is an expansion of the long-standing partnership between Sun Chemical and Azelis.

This addition strengthens Azelis’ capacity to assure that industrial chemicals customers will benefit from a broad product portfolio, solid backup, and technical expertise.
