Thermoplastics resin distributor M. Holland Co. has entered into a partnership with JL Goor Materials, a polymer distribution company headquartered in Dublin. The agreement provides access to M. Holland’s Mtegrity products in both Ireland and the UK, along with connections to strategic supply partners. This international partnership marks M. Holland’s first formal business venture in Europe and expands the availability of the Mtegrity portfolio, the company said.

“Our partnership with JL Goor Materials provides a value-added logistical solution to support our clients who have international business locations or expansion plans,” said Josh Blackmore, Global Healthcare Manager at M. Holland. “JL Goor Materials is a great, family-owned partner for us with similar values. They take an entrepreneurial approach to doing business and offer expertise in globally sourcing world-class products.”

According to M. Holland, the agreement provides its clients with the value-added benefit of leveraging logistical solutions based in Ireland and the UK, including stocking, consignment programs, and bulk processing services. M. Holland and JL Goor Materials plan to collaborate on bringing Mtegrity products to address the needs of clients and business partners within these markets.

JL Goor Materials has more than 30 years of experience delivering complete turnkey manufacturing solutions and offers technical expertise and dedicated warehousing and transport facilities. The company has ambitious plans to grow in the UK polymer market with a focused approach to the rotational molding, film and flexible packaging, and medical markets.

“We are delighted to be partnering with M. Holland to develop and grow the Mtegrity brand in the UK and Irish markets,” said Gearoid Clarke, Managing Director of JL Goor Materials. “This partnership and the quality product offering will strengthen our growth plans for the UK, complement business with our existing polyolefin partners in Ireland, and enhance our supply options with existing and new customers. We will also be working with M. Holland to grow our medical polymer portfolio and strengthen efforts with our current long-term compounding partners.”
