Nexeo Plastics Signs EMEA Distribution Agreement with KuibyshevAzot Affiliate
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, October 27, 2020 – Nexeo Plastics, a leading global thermoplastics resin distributor, has signed an agreement with STFG Filamente GmbH, an affiliate of KuibyshevAzot, a Russian-based chemicals company, to distribute their polyamide 6-based (PA6) products throughout Europe.
“We are excited to join with Nexeo Plastics and become part of their extensive distribution network, providing our customers more choices and outstanding customer service across Europe,” said Dmitriy Rybkin, director of marketing. “The Volgamid™ line of resins offer end users a variety of choices, including sustainable recycling materials for high-end applications.”
Nexeo Plastics will carry and distribute the Volgamid™ ECO-line series. ECO-line materials are environmentally friendly solutions that help reduce CO2 emissions and offer end users a circular economy manufacturing option. With two choices — the ECO-G6A line, a mostly prime/recycled material mix and the ECO-G6B line with 100% recycled materials — manufacturers can specifically address their sustainability goals. Nexeo Plastics will also carry KuibyshevAzot’s PA6 portfolio including standard PA6 compounds and unreinforced and lubricated Volgamid™ BXD materials.
“The agreement with KuibyshevAzot extends our reach in EMEA and improves the selection of standard and eco-friendly thermoplastics to those requiring solutions for a variety of applications,” said Paul Tayler, president and chief executive officer of Nexeo Plastics. “Their ECO-line of products are a welcome complement to our overall portfolio in the sustainable products category.”
