HaloPolymer Trading, Inc. is the first foreign representative office of HaloPolymer, ОАО.

The company said the main task of the representative office is to provide a qualitative sales increase of its PTFE grades (PN, PN20, PN40, PN90, A, DE, TM, PNM1/2 and TG), as well as development of prospective fuse fluoropolymers sales (FEP, ETFE, PVDF etc.) to customers in North and South America.

The opening of the U.S. office allows HaloPolymer, ОАО to provide better service to its customers such as fixed prices as of the transaction settlement without the necessity to perform customs formalities, which also allows for significant lead time reduction.
