Chase Plastic Services Inc. has added engineering materials from Envalior to its distribution lineup.
In a news release, officials with Chase in Clarkston, Mich., said Envalior "is focused on providing innovative and sustainable solutions that enable future-proof product designs." They added that the firm has a global presence and supplies many key markets, including mobility, electronics/electrical and consumer goods.
"Envalior's shared dedication to exceptional service, along with their impressive product range complements our existing engineering and specialty engineering offerings, allowing us to better serve our customers," Chase President Adam Paulson said.
Chase now distributes Envalior's full line of materials, including Stanyl-brand nylon 4/6, Pocan-brand PBT and PBT alloys and Akulon-brand nylon 6 and 6/6.
Envalior was formed in 2022 from a combination of the engineering resins businesses of Lanxess AG and Royal DSM NV. Lanxess and private equity firm Advent International of Boston combined to buy DSM's engineering resins unit and create Envalior, which is based in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Envalior has annual sales of more than $4 billion and employs about 4,000 worldwide. The firm operates former DSM sites in The Netherlands, China, India, Belgium, Taiwan, and Evansville, Ind., and former Lanxess sites in Germany, China, Belgium, India, Brazil and Gastonia, N.C.
Chase previously had worked with both Lanxess and DSM.
"Thanks to our longstanding partnership with Lanxess and priorly with DSM, our commercial team is well-versed in the Envalior portfolio and its targeted applications," Paulson said.
Envalior Americas commercial director Grace Showalter added that Chase's "commitment to outstanding technical support, product and customer service will differentiate them in the market."
Chase is a stocking distributor with a portfolio of more than 35,000 grades of specialty, engineering and commodity materials. In the second half of 2023, the firm expanded its CP Pryme product line to include CP Pryme ECO resins for sustainable products.
