Univar, Colonial Chemical Strike Distribution Deal


Univar Inc. (Univar) has announced its subsidiary, Univar B.V., has established a distribution agreement with Colonial Chemical’s beauty, personal care and household division.

The agreement will expand Univar’s surfactant portfolio, as well as its ability to offer products derived from renewable ingredients. Colonial specializes in mild, environmentally safe and high-performing chemicals from natural, renewable ingredients.

“I am pleased to confirm a new, five-year European distribution agreement with Univar to represent a select range of our unique, green, specialty surfactants,” said David Anderson, Jr., vice president, sales & marketing for Colonial.  "We believe Univar presents the best opportunity to maximize growth in Europe for our specialized ingredients.”

“Surfactants have always been a key part of the Univar portfolio and with the addition of Colonial's products, we are now able to provide a tailored offering of surfactants derived from all-natural and renewable ingredients,” said Matthew Ottaway, Univar’s vice president of focused industries in EMEA. “This will better meet growing consumer demand for natural products in both the personal care and home care markets.”
