Azelis inks exclusive deal in UK and EU to distribute Calumet hydrocarbon products
Chemicals distributor Azelis has entered an exclusive distribution agreement with Calumet Penreco in the UK and Europe to meet global specialty hydrocarbon demand.

Calumet is a refiner and processor of specialty hydrocarbon products including USP/NF white mineral oils and hydrocarbon gels, and has signed the deal to allow Azelis to distribute the full line of its Versagels range, used in personal care applications.

Neil Berry, international business director Life Sciences at Azelis comments, "We have had an excellent working relationship with Calumet in the UK and Germany for many years and are now extremely delighted to be extending our relationship throughout Europe.”

“Utilising our previous experience means that we have a comprehensive range of finished formulations available for all skin care and colour cosmetic applications to support customer needs and we are already exploring new applications for the innovative Versagel range".

Utilise market experience

Azelis has vast experience in the European personal care market and is a distributor for ingredients and application solutions in personal care, fragrance and fragrance ingredients.

As a manufacturer of hydrocarbon gels, Calumet Penreco, a wholly owned subsidiary of Calumet Specialty Products Partners, says it looks forward to expanding and developing its product offering in the growing European market space, with this deal.

"A strong partnership with Azelis provides us with the best opportunity to realise our goals for 2012,” ​explains Apryl Kennedy, Versagel & Synergel product manager for Calumet Penreco.

“Their extensive distribution channels in the EU, the innovative lab capabilities as well as their dedication to finished formulation development make them the right distributor for our unique Versagels".

In addition, Azelis will provide sampling, formulation and advice on product development, from concept through to manufacturing which Calumet feel will only serve to further benefit the company’s products.

"We believe that our specialty market product line is the right fit with Azelis's current product portfolio and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership,”​ added Kennedy.
