Ferro and Simon & Werner extend distribution partnership in Germany
In addition to the currently supplied heat stable and weather resistant complex inorganic colour pigments (CICP) from Ferro, Simon & Werner GmbH is now also the exclusive distributor for a broad range of inorganic pigments resulting from the acquisition of Nubiola by Ferro on July 7, 2015:ultramarines, iron oxides, chrome oxide greens and bismuth vanadates.
Very important market
Laurent Jeanne, Ferro’s North Europe Business Manager, claims: “Germany is a very important market for Ferro Pigments, both for our CICPs and our Nubiola legacy ones. We intend to consolidate the distribution partnership for our entire portfolio (with the exception of corrosion inhibitors) in Simon & Werner GmbH, who have been our partner in the country for long. Our local presence combined with Simon & Werner GmbH’s strength, focused on Nubiola legacy pigments from now on, will very much contribute to continue meeting our customers’ needs in such a very demanding area. We do believe that our position as #1 ultramarines producer, strong supplier of zinc ferrites & specialty iron oxides and CICP leading company allows us to offer a very broad range of colour solutions to the German market”
