AOC and BÜFA are expanding their existing collaboration in distribution to Sweden through BÜFA Composites Nordics. This agreement will enable customers in the region to have better access to a broad range of quality resins, gelcoats and ancillary materials.

BÜFA Composite Systems has been purchasing resins from AOC already for over 50 years, processing these into tailor-made reactive resin specialties and complete solutions. In addition, the companies have a long-standing sales and distribution partnership in numerous European countries. The comprehensive distribution network in Europe includes Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Baltic States, Spain and Portugal, Belgium, Netherland, Finland, Great Britain, and Ireland.

Last year, the collaboration was already expanded to cover Austria and Southeast Europe.-. Now the successful cooperation with AOC is extended in the Scandinavian market. Moving forward, the portfolio of BÜFA and AOC is not only available in Finland, but also in Sweden through BÜFA Composites Nordics OY.

„BÜFA and AOC have been building a very strong partnership over the years”, comments Lothar Kempf, General Manager of BÜFA Composite Systems. “The expansion into Sweden marks another milestone in this great relation and enables processors in the composites industry in Sweden to have access to a complete product portfolio with a wide range of resins and specialties.”

“This initiative underlines the joint commitment to sustainability and providing innovative solutions for the composites industry,“ underlines Fons Harbers, Vice President Marketing & Sales EMEA for AOC. “We have proven many times that customers can successfully grow their business, building on the support from our combined companies.“

In BÜFA Composites Nordics OY, Sami Partio will continue to support customers In Finland, while Olle Johnsson will take on the new responsibility for the distribution business in Sweden, and for BÜFA specialties in Norway. Both bring deep market knowledge and expertise to best serve the needs of customers in their respective countries.
