KaMin and Omya have reached agreement on continuing their current long-term relationship, where Omya acts as an agent for KaMin products in EMEA. Additionally Omya will effective April 1, 2015 act as an agent for KaMin for their Cadam products in Europe out of their Antwerp facility for EMEA. Omya continues to focus on developing their distribution business in Forest Products in support of our core businesses.
Rankin Hobbs, CEO of KaMin:” We are extremely pleased not only to continue our long relationship with Omya, but also to expand it to include our portfolio of clays from Cadam. Our unique fine particle clays are perfect co pigments in high containing GCC coating formulations. It just seems so obvious that we should be working hand in hand with Omya to optimize our customer’s cost and quality.”
Thoralf Gliese, EVP Forest Products Industry at Omya: “This new agreement represents a major milestone in our relationship and I am very happy about this achievement, because it is an important step for the entire Omya “Forest Products Industry” team to strengthen our distribution business. The next step will be to fully incorporate the Cadam clays into the Omya product & sales portfolio. I would also like to emphasize that we have already started the process to find new applications for existing products through joint Research & Development.”
