Magog, Quebec -- A distribution agreement has been announced between composites supplier SP and Ashland Distribution. As the SP Group continues to gain sales momentum in the US, this is a significant step forward for the company who will now be able to access an even broader spread of customers in the region. The agreement, which is effective immediately, grants Ashland distribution rights across North America for the entire SP range of products. This includes the company's flagship structural foam Corecell™ as well as heavyweight structural prepregs, formulated epoxy resin and structural design services.

It has already been a successful year for SP's North American operation. Thanks to the completion of an ambitious expansion programme at the Magog site, the company has tripled Corecell™ production. As a result Don Belock, Ashland Distribution Director of Source Management (Composites), is looking forward to being able to offer innovative products in a customer orientated manner with flexible delivery capability.

"Ashland and SP North America (formerly ATC Chemicals Inc.) have enjoyed a long affiliation in Canada and we are delighted this relationship has now been extended", remarked Jean-Pierre Mouligne, SP North America's Sales Manager.
