Rohm and Haas to acquire powder coatings distributor in France

By Tim Wright

Published April 10, 2008
Rohm and Haas Europe Sarl has announced the acquisition of ACIL, its former exclusive distributor for the French powder coatings market.

Based in Savigneux, France, ACIL has for 14 years positioned itself as a strong player in the French powder coating industry, through its service driven ethic, comprehensive product range and committed support infrastructure for its customers.

"Through this acquisition we are clearly demonstrating our commitment to the powder coatings market," said Xavier Susterac, general manager powder coatings Europe. "We keep investing in this market, both in research and development, manufacturing excellence and in people. France remains a major market in the overall European powder coatings arena and one where we expect to see considerable growth opportunities through ACIL's excellent reputation and customer reach."

On this point Paul Bichon, president of ACIL said, "This is a great opportunity for both parties to significantly grow the powder coatings business in France. Rohm and Haas already has the broadest portfolio of ready to ship products through their Claymore range, as well as the most extensive powder coatings technological platforms in the marketplace. The French team will promote all these technologies into a market that is demanding and continually eager for innovative solutions."

As of April 8, 2008, ACIL will become part of Rohm and Haas Europe structure.
