Philippe Combette, General Manager of Safic-Alcan, said: "With this agreement, we are now responsible for all distribution of Michelman’s paper & corrugated coatings in the United Kingdom. This is a landmark in our long-term relationship and continued loyal service and commitment to our global partner. This new distribution business will help strengthen the long existing business partnership between Safic-Alcan and Michelman.”

Expanding the coatings business in Europe

"This development is consistent with our vision to expand our coatings business in Europe. Michelman has a strong and established presence in Europe and around the globe. The company’s European headquarters are in Luxembourg, and their manufacturing operations are in Belgium. With this new relationship with a global powerhouse, our goal is to make Michelman’s products a sustainable and profitable business both within and outside the United Kingdom,” concluded Philippe Combette.

The Darent Wax Company, a UK-based distributor and wax manufacturer, had distributed Michleman’s paper & corrugated coatings brands including "GlossCoat”, "HydraBan”, "Michem Coat” and "VaporCoat" in the United-Kingdom.

Tony Ward, CEO and founder of Darent Wax, determined that full distribution potential of Michelman’s paper & corrugated coatings would be best realised outside Darent Wax, and worked together with Michelman to transfer distribution to Safic-Alcan.
