Wacker reorganizes silicone distribution business in Nordic countries

MUNICH, GERMANY: Munich-based chemicals group Wacker has reorganized its silicone distribution business in the Nordic countries. As of 1 March 2015, Lindberg & Lund Oy AB, a subsidiary of the Norwegian chemicals distributor Lindberg & Lund AS, will market room-temperature-vulcanizing silicone rubber grades in Finland. Kevra Oy was the previous distributor for the business. Distribution responsibilities in Sweden are to remain with ABIC Kemi AB, which is now part of the Lindberg & Lund Group.

As a result of the reorganization, Lindberg & Lund will be assuming a large portion of the distribution business, giving it a key role in the sale of room-temperature-curing silicones in the Nordic region. ABIC, a Swedish specialty chemicals distributor, will act as a regional hub, distributing products to adjacent Scandinavian countries, including Denmark.
