RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — March 1, 2019 — As part of its strategy to foster the additional growth of its Specialties business, and to provide outstanding service to its customers, SABIC has named Amco Polymers LLC as a third distribution partner in North America, providing SABIC customers with specialty engineering thermoplastics and related services in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Amco Polymers joins Nexeo Solutions Inc. and Chase Plastic Services Inc. as authorized distributors of SABIC’s complete portfolio of specialty materials, including NORYL™ resins (polyphenylene ether-based materials), ULTEM™ resins (polyetherimide materials), LNP™ compounds and the full range of polycarbonate-based high-performance copolymers.
“We are delighted to welcome Amco Polymers to the team, as we seek to further expand our ability to deliver high-performance solutions, along with outstanding service, to our Specialties customers in North America,” said Cathie Hess, director, customer fulfillment, SABIC. “Amco Polymers’ extensive knowledge of specialty plastics, together with their application development expertise, and a culture focused on delivering ‘peace of mind’ to their customers make Amco Polymers an excellent fit with SABIC and, most importantly, our customers.”
