Bodo Möller Chemie (www.bm-chemie.com) will continue its global expansion through a growing partnership with Huntsman. Bodo Möller Chemie will take over the distribution of Huntsman Advanced Materials including its adhesives, potting & casting product lines. The focus will be on structural adhesives for industrial manufacturing, as well as potting and casting systems for the electronics industry. As a distributor with deep product and application knowledge, customers will benefit from Bodo Möller Chemie’s comprehensive lab testing services as a solutions provider. « In the age of e-mobility and extreme lightweight construction, we help manufacturers from the transportation and electronics industries to solve new and challenging demands in bonding and sealing, » explains Frank Haug, CEO of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
Bodo Möller Chemie recently opened a subsidiary in the United States, located in Atlanta, Georgia, in addition to one in Puebla, Mexico. Now close to key transportation manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers in the USA, Bodo Möller Chemie can strategically provide knowledge and its product portfolio all over the United States. The two Bodo Möller Chemie subsidiaries will focus on the distribution of Huntsman technologies. Huntsman Advanced Materials and Bodo Möller Chemie have both worked together for years already in Europe and in Asia: “This is a natural expansion of our successful European business and distribution model to the NAFTA region,” explains Andreas Moser, Director of Formulated Systems at Bodo Möller Chemie.
