Wacker Appoints New Distributor for Polymer and Silicone Products in Chile

Wacker reorganizes its distribution network for silicone and polymer products in Chile to improve efficiency and to create crossregional synergies. As part of an ongoing optimization of Wacker’s distribution sales channels, Quimica Anders is to be entrusted with the distribution of Wacker’s polymer and silicone products in Chile. Effective July 1, 2010, Quimica Anders, who is already a WACKER partner in Peru and Bolivia, replaces the previous distribution partner Ingenieria Y Comercial Inge-Wag Ltda.

Quimica Anders, a distribution partner with 45 years of experience in the regional distribution market and an established presence in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Uruguay and Guatemala, already distributes selected WACKER products from the Group’s silicones and polymers portfolio in Peru and Bolivia. In Chile, the focus will be on dispersible polymer powders and dispersions as well as on silicone emulsions, silicone resins and antifoam agents, mainly aiming at applications in the construction, cosmetics, textiles and pulp & paper-processing sectors, and in the process industry.
