Terra Firma's distribution territory will now extend from the mid-Atlantic to the southwestern U.S. The expansion includes Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado.
Terra Firma is a specialty coating materials distributor, formed at the end of 2017 by the acquisition of D&F Distribution and DN Lukens by Dunleary Inc.
Accounts in the region currently serviced directly by Arkema will continue in the same manner.
"The Dunleary organization has done an outstanding job promoting these high performance products since 2009,” said North American Business Manager Josh Gingras. “The creation of Terra Firma enables us to build on the success realized by Dunleary with the Orgasol and Rilsan D product ranges to another geographic region."
The Orgasol and Rilsan D products are high performance coating additives, designed mainly for liquid and UV coatings. Based on Arkema’s specialty polyamide chemistry, these high-performance additives improve multiple performance aspects of the formulation, such as abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, gloss reduction, hardness, and also texture creation. These products are used in multiple market segments, such as coil, wood, automotive, electronics, and transfer paper.
