Univar Tunisian entity now operational

02-Oct-2012 - Tunisia

Univar Inc. announced its legal entity in Tunisia is now fully operational. This office will operate alongside similar entities in Morocco, Egypt and Algeria which together form the backbone of Univar’s North African offering.

Univar has been active in Tunisia for more than a decade, selling products from its French and UK entities, but this is the first time it has established a local operation in the country. Univar’s Tunisian business is headed by Country Manager, Eminn Chahed, who joined the company in 2010, having gained many years experience working in the chemical and energy industries.  He is responsible for growing the local customer base and enlarging Univar’s product portfolio in the region.

“The chemical distribution industry in Tunisia right now is highly fragmented and dominated by domestic players,” explains Nick Powell, Univar’s regional vice president Middle East, Africa, Greece, and Turkey. “There is a significant opportunity for an international distributor like Univar that can leverage a global supply chain but still work closely with customers on the ground.”
