MILLIKEN has named PlastiColors the official distributor in South Africa for its clarifiers, nucleators, UV absorber concentrates and ClearTint concentrates. The agreement took effect on 1 August 2018.
PlastiColors has actively developed markets for Milliken’s products over the past five years. PlastiColors has a thorough understanding of the value and workings of Milliken’s nucleators and clarifiers, enabling it to effectively sell the benefits of those products to its clients.
Additionally, Carolyn Kellock, PlastiColors’ Technical Manager, worked as Territory Manager for Milliken’s South Africa office from 2013 to mid-2017. This further strengthens the knowledge base at PlastiColors as regards the use and potential further development of markets for Milliken’s range of products. Kellock feels the two firms are a good fit: “Both PlastiColors and Milliken are family-owned businesses that share a passion for technology and creating new solutions for developing markets. We believe this will be a strong, long-term relationship and that together our companies can continue to grow Milliken’s valued products within the South African market.”
Milliken will continue to maintain its own office in the country, from which it provides all necessary technical support and solutions. The company is pleased to be bringing global innovations to South Africa and across the African continent.
