HORN, one of North America’s premier distributors of specialty ingredients, chemicals and raw materials, has been awarded with Cabot Corporation’s 2013 “North American Distributor Performance Award,” recognizing Cabot’s top distributor throughout the U.S. and Canada.
“HORN was a strategic partner in a very challenging economic and competitive environment,” said Hector A. Rodriguez, North America distributor manager, Cabot Performance Materials. “They were able to achieve targeted initiative objectives, accomplished by a strong collaboration between HORN and Cabot – a collaboration demonstrating the commitment to a mutually beneficial partnership. We are very pleased to present this well-earned accolade to the entire HORN team.”
HORN represents Cabot in the Western U.S. across all seven of its business units – Coatings and Building Materials, Advanced Materials, and Composites and Fabrication Materials under HORN’s Industrial Division; FoodTech, Care Elements and Animal Wellness under HORN’s Ingredients Division; and HORN Nutraceuticals.
“When we join forces with our principal suppliers, our goal is to align with their corporate vision and function as a true extension of their team,” said Parry Foskett, vice president, HORN Advanced Materials and HORN Composites and Fabrication Materials. “Being recognized for our outstanding performance is an excellent measurement of this goal. This award would not be possible without a company-wide effort across all departments and business units at HORN, and the support of Hector and the Cabot organization. We are honored and humbled to receive this award and will continue to strive for excellence as we serve our valued partners.”
Cabot’s 2013 “North American Distributor Performance Award” was presented to HORN by Rodriguez and Imtiaz Kathawalla, vice president, Cabot Performance Group-Americas, at the HORN headquarters in La Mirada, Calif. on March 18. This marks the first year that HORN was distinguished with the distributor of the year award from Cabot since it began representing the company in 2002.
