Distrupol Expands Across the EMEA Region

Distrupol, a leading distributor of thermoplastics and elastomers to the polymer processing industry and an affiliate of GPD Companies, have announced that it is expanding its business operations across the majority of the EMEA region.

Newly acquired distribution rights and strategic business expansion will reinforce Distrupol as an EMEA-wide polymer distribution partner in 2024.

From 1 January 2024, Distrupol will be active in the sales and distribution of polymer materials across most EMEA countries and regions, based on strategically located sales offices and distribution hubs. Additional facilities will be operational in Germany, France, Spain and Italy (adding to the existing facilities in the UK, Ireland, Nordics, Benelux and Egypt), serving the expanded service area with the sales support of newly recruited sales representatives across multiple countries.

James Stanton, Distrupol Commercial & Operations Director, commented:

“Expanding EMEA-wide is an incredible achievement for Distrupol and a task that we are extremely excited to get our teeth into. We have distribution agreements in place with a number of key supply partners to be able to deliver a full portfolio of polyamides, acetal, polyethylene, polypropylene, acrylic, ABS, polycarbonate, additives, compounds and masterbatch to designers and manufacturers in the industry,”
“With newly recruited sales representatives across EMEA, and central technical and customer service support available, we are well equipped and prepared to take our industry-leading polymer expertise into new territories.”

Distrupol, which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2023, is well-known for its ambitious growth strategies. Having established Distrupol USA earlier this year and having acquired Baritec AB and Lautrup Chemicals in the Nordic region in the last 12 months, Distrupol’s management team is well-versed in the requirements of expansion and business development.

Richard Orme, Distrupol’s Managing Director, said:

“The Distrupol team is renowned for its tenacity for success and drive to deliver the absolute best for our customers and supply partners. The expansive portfolio, technical expertise, logistical excellence, first-class service and absolute quality that our current regions experience as Distrupol customers will now be available to designers, manufacturers, producers and OEMs in the likes of France, Italy, Iberia, DACH, CEE, the Middle East, North Africa, and beyond,”
“I am incredibly proud of what this business has achieved over the past 60 years, and in the last two years specifically, and I am honoured to lead such a business as we take our activity to the next level with our new geographical reach.”
