Ashland will continue to buy and sell DSM products in North America until the deadline. The DSM and Ashland business relationships in the European and Asia/Pacific regions will remain unaffected by this announcement. DSM adds to its global and regional distribution network Channel Prime Alliance, which will jointly serve as a key distributor along with current distributor Chase Plastics.
