September 09, 2022

Waalwijk, the Netherlands, September 9, 2022 – Stahl, an active proponent of responsible chemistry, has confirmed a new distribution agreement with Univar Solutions, a leading global solutions provider to users of specialty ingredients and chemicals for coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers. Univar Solutions Brazil and Univar Solutions Colombia will deliver Stahl products to customers in Brazil and Colombia, respectively. The agreement was made effective September 1, 2022.

With more than 90 years of experience in chemical and ingredient distribution, Univar Solutions’ expertise will help Stahl anticipate and leverage meaningful growth opportunities in two of South America’s most dynamic economies. The new agreement builds on Stahl’s long-standing partnership with Univar Solutions, who has served as Stahl’s distributor in Eastern Europe for several years. The companies share a commitment to sustainability, social responsibility, and supply chain efficiency, making the collaboration highly beneficial for both parties.

“Stahl is delighted to announce this expanded partnership with Univar Solutions,” said Raymond Bakker, Global Business Director Stahl Polymers. “With our values and priorities so closely aligned, Univar Solutions was the natural choice to help Stahl expand in South America. By working more closely together, we will deliver greater value for customers, investors, and wider society.”

Under the new agreement, Univar Solutions will distribute Stahl’s extensive range of products and polymers for coatings material customers. The products are mainly acrylic resins, polyurethanes, and the special polymers from Stahl’s European and Brazilian production and are used in various industrial and wood coating applications. The registered trade names Picassian® and Relca® are already established in the market and are well known in the coatings industry. 

"I'm very pleased to expand our relationship with Stahl into Brazil and Colombia, thus bringing more product solutions to our industrial coatings customers. Growing relationships such as this showcase the true global nature of the Univar Solutions' CASE business and how we bring value to customers and supply partners," said Chris Fitzgerald, global vice president, CASE, Rubber and Plastic Additives for Univar Solutions.
