As part of a planned growth strategy in Eastern Europe, ChemTrend Romania has been established through the acquisition. ChemTrend Romania will continue to support the local market in the existing industries of polyurethane and rubber molding, thermoplastics processing and die casting and will expand in the future to support the needs of the tire manufacturing market as well.
The new entity was formed with many of the same team that had been servicing release agent customers through Rubio, including one of the former owners of that organization, Ciprian Cristea.
“Rubio has long been known for its knowledge of the release agent business combined with excellence in customer service, and ChemTrend provides R&D, global sales, service and manufacturing capabilities. Joining the talents of these very dynamic and complementary organizations will directly enhance the service we offer to our important customers in Eastern Europe,” said Paul McGill, executive director sales & marketing, ChemTrend Europe.
The company provides end users across various markets with release systems and complementary molding process aids that create enhanced value, efficiency and productivity. ChemTrend has a global presence with production facilities on four continents, offices or local representatives in 20 countries, and a distribution network covering more than 50 countries. ChemTrend products are used in a broad range of applications, including composites, rubber and polyurethane molding, high-pressure die casting, thermoplastics processing, wood composite pressing and in the manufacturing of tires. The company’s global sales and technical service representatives work on-site with customers to maximize release agent value addition and provide dependable application and processing expertise.
