The Netherlands’ DSM Dyneema has formed a partnership with EuroFibers BV in which Eurofibers becomes a Premium Distribution Partner for UHMWPE fibre manufactured by DSM Dyneema. The new agreement becomes effective 1 April 2011 and is specific to Scandinavia, Denmark, United Kingdom, Benelux, France, Italy, Greece and the Iberian Peninsula.
EuroFibers will offer an increased level of UHMWPE fibre enhancing capabilities
EuroFibers will play an active role in developing new and servicing existing markets for fibre from DSM Dyneema. It will also offer an increased level of UHMWPE fibre enhancing capabilities as well as continued technical service and application development support. In addition, EuroFibers will be assigned with the responsibility to supply UHMWPE fibre from DSM Dyneema to a selected number of existing customers currently supplied by DSM Dyneema.
DSM Dyneema says the partnership marks the next step in DSM Dyneema’s continued commitment to supply and service the European textile industry with sustainable and high performance UHMWPE fibre solutions.
“With this strategic partnership we are able to streamline the supply of flat and twisted DSM Dyneema fiber manufactured by DSM Dyneema to existing and potentially new customers,” says Edwin Grootendorst, Regional Manager EMEA at DSM Dyneema. “Through the partnership the service level for these customers will be raised, meaning shorter lead-times, more flexibility and simply higher attention focused on helping our customer’s businesses grow and develop further.”
“This is an exciting step forward for all the customers and potential customers of UHMWPE fibre from DSM Dyneema in the area and we are thrilled that EuroFibers plays such as a key role,” says Marcel Alberts, Managing Director of EuroFibers, who previously spent 7 years as a sales and marketing manager with DSM Dyneema. “They will benefit from enhanced customer and technical support through our distribution network overall providing easier access to flat, twisted and assembled products.”
