Thermoplastic resins distributor M. Holland Co. (Northbrook, IL) has entered into a distribution agreement with Austria-based polyolefins producer Borealis (Vienna). Under the agreement, M. Holland will distribute filled polypropylene (PP) from Borealis’ new PP compounding facility in Taylorsville, NC, as well as imported PP, polyethylene and Queo polyolefin plastomers and elastomers to the North American market.
The new agreement will support both companies’ focused approach toward continued growth in end-use markets including automotive, appliances, general molding and non-healthcare packaging. It also offers M. Holland’s clients greater material selection and enhanced supply chain security.
“Our Business Development Group at M. Holland is ideally positioned to support Borealis’ market strategies in North America,” said Ed Holland, M. Holland President and CEO. “Borealis has a wide range of best-in-class materials that will greatly enhance our product offering for our clients.”
John Webster of Borealis added, “Borealis has a rigorous selection process for the appointment of its distributors. From the broad field of candidates, we concluded that M. Holland shares both our core values and our strategic direction.
“Delivering on our growth ambition in North America as well as in specific end-use markets is a priority for Borealis,” Webster added. “We are extremely happy to be working with M. Holland to help us meet these important business objectives.”
