To meet customer requirements, and as part of its ongoing commitment to the Middle East, Huntsman Polyurethanes has appointed a dedicated sales manager for the region. Working in tandem with local agents and distributors, Johann Clemens will provide expert advice to customers looking to develop polyurethane-based products. He will also provide input to Huntsman's technical teams to help steer new initiatives and further enhance the performance capabilities of Huntsman polyurethanes to cope with specific Middle Eastern environmental conditions.

We look forward to working with our customers to expand and drive forward additional polyurethane developments focussed specifically on Middle Eastern requirements."
