Distrupol to distribute masterbatches and colour compounds from Matrix Plastics in the Benelux

Distrupol : 11 December, 2003  (New Product)
Distrupol, a member company of Univar and a leading European polymer distributor, technical service provider and application development partner, is to undertake the distribution in the Benelux of the masterbatches and colour compounds produced by Matrix Plastics Ltd.
Matrix Plastics Ltd., one of the largest independent manufacturers of masterbatches in the United Kingdom, already has several customers in the region. Through the collaboration with Distrupol, Matrix Plastics will gain wider access to this important market through Distrupol’s existing Benelux customer network. Additionally, their existing customers will benefit from the local technical and application development support provided by Distrupol.

The Matrix Plastics product range is an important addition to the existing Distrupol product range, according to Rick Sodenkamp, Managing Director of Distrupol in the Benelux. “Matrix supplies both universal and polymer-specific masterbatches for almost all thermoplastic materials. The company also supplies a wide choice of additives, including fire retardants, antioxidants, light stabilisers, and antistatic additives, as well as special colour effects. By deciding to work with Distrupol their products are now available to all of our customers. That’s good for us, it’s good for Matrix and that’s good for our customers.”

Steve Burton, General Manager of Matrix Plastics, is happy with the expansion of the agreement to include the Benelux. “We have been working with Distrupol in the UK for several years. We are very satisfied with the service given by the company and the solution-oriented advice they provide to their customers when developing new plastics applications. Our decision to extend the agreement with Distrupol to include the Benelux region was basically the natural choice.”

Matrix Plastics Ltd is an independent manufacturer of masterbatches, colour compounds and additives for the plastics industry. The company’s products are used in the automobile industry, electronic goods, household and medical equipment, office machines, furniture, packaging and toys.

Established in 1991 the company enjoys an outstanding reputation for speed, quality and service within the plastics processing industry. The company operates from Slough, UK, to the west of London, from where it serves the European and Asian markets. Matrix is currently establishing a new factory in Thailand, which will be fully operational in January 2004.
