"When we explored further opportunities to increase the availability of our branded and imported products to both new and existing markets, Univar was the right fit for our suppliers and customers. With a global reach, local service delivery and deep technical expertise, we are confident that Univar will continue to help develop the future of the radiation curing market and build on the legacy of Polymer Technologies.”
