The new partnership brings together distributors with total annual sales revenues of $3 billion, making it the largest alliance of independent chemical distributors in the world.
As independent chemical distributors, Omni-Chem 136 and ECDA members are able to offer benchmark standards of responsiveness and customer service — which are backed with the competitive presence of a major transatlantic alliance.
The partnership was announced by Ed Pitkin, President of Ulrich Chemical, Indianapolis, on behalf of Omni-Chem 136 and for the ECDA by its Chairman, Edgar E Nordmann, of Nordmann Rassmann, Germany.
"The partnership creates a new dimension to our North American alliance. Our customers will now benefit from the combined commercial leverage and logistics of Omni-Chem 136 and ECDA — but still enjoy the benefits of a fast-response local service," Pitkin said.
Edgar E Nordmann, said, "We are delighted to have joined forces with Omni-Chem 136. It gives ECDA comprehensive coverage of North America and Canada — both key markets for our emerging international network of independent chemical distributors."
