Plastribution’s Speciality Chemicals Division Rebrands

Plastribution’s speciality chemicals division, Plascoatings, has rebranded to Plastribution Speciality Chemicals. The change became effective on 25 August 2022.

The move aims to provide better opportunities for the business to evolve its brand and reinforce the breadth of products and services it represents. From a strategic perspective, the rebrand strengthens its position in the marketplace by making clear relations with its parent company – the Plastribution Group of Companies. There has been no change in management and the range of products and services.

As Plascoatings, the business was formerly a €6m interest of Plastribution’s parent company, ITOCHU, the Japanese multi-national trading group. The business became part of  Plastribution in 2016, serving civil engineering, automotive, and domestic markets. Since then, Plascoatings has developed its brand by stocking and distributing an extensive range of curing and crosslinking agents for coatings, paints, films, inks and adhesive applications, including polyurethane systems, reactive diluents, adhesion promoters, resins, solvents, polyaspartic system components, solvents and general additives.

Plastribution Speciality Chemicals’ Joanne Holmes said: “This is an exciting time for the business, with the rebrand marking the next phase in our journey and new opportunities to provide our customers with quality products and excellent service.

“I was pleased to join Plascoatings at the outset of the UK venture and have witnessed much change; we have seen good growth in sales and now stock a large proportion of our materials within the UK, thus enabling an improved service and delivery time to our customers.

“During the Covid-19 lockdown, we also moved to our fantastic new premises, and we have been keen to utilise these for both customer and supplier meetings. The rebranding further integrates the current business into the Plastribution group and allows a wider breadth to the markets we aim to supply.”
