Chemtura will discontinue its flame retardant business relationship with Chempoint and Nexeo on January 31st, 2017. Chad Kessler, Commercial Director for Great Lakes Solutions in the Americas, states “Chemtura is committed to enabling our customers’ growth, hence consolidating our distribution channel with Azelis makes sense, given their world-class technical capabilities and supply chain expertise which will allow Chemtura to more efficiently serve all market segments.”

A Smooth Transition

Great Lakes Solutions, Azelis, Chempoint and Nexeo are committed to ensuring a smooth transition for all customers and do not expect any disruptions as a result of this change.

"We are excited to be expanding our relationship with Chemtura. We have the technical capabilities in the lab and in our sales force to grow this business for Chemtura.” Dan Gruber, President of CASE, Azelis Americas adds, “the flame retardant products from Great Lakes Solutions fills a void in our product offering. We are committed to servicing and growing the customer base in the US and in Canada.”
