DSM signs distribution agreements for Engineering Plastics B.V. with Nevicolor and Nexeo Solutions to strengthen its presence in Italy
Nevicolor is a growing family-owned distributor based in Luzzara, not far from Parma, which previously distributed DSM products only in the Emilia-Romagna region in central Italy. Nexeo Solutions is a Pan European distribution partner for DSM and covers the rest of the country (apart from Triveneto in the North-East). Nexeo’s main Italian warehouse is just outside Milan.
From now on, Nevicolor and Nexeo will both distribute in all areas of Italy, apart from Triveneto, which continues to be the responsibility of a third distributor, Arcopolimeri. With the increased covers, DSM can provide products to a larger group of customers.
The move, which is effective beginning of 2013, is in line with DSM’s strategy to deliver value for existing and new customers world-wide.
According to Anna Mojana, Distribution Manager of DSM Engineering Plastics in Europe, this joint approach will facilitate further growth of DSM in the key Italian marketplace, where DSM already has a strong position. “These new agreements represent a win-win-win situation for us, our distributors, and our final customers,” she says. “DSM’s range of world class products will be more easily available throughout Italy for our final customers.”
All products will be fully supported by DSM’s outstanding technical support and application development programs, where necessary.
