Marine Industry Coating Systems: Selecting and Sourcing

New distribution agreements will bring International Paint’s Marine and Protective Coatings products to the Caribbean and Central America, while a separate alliance will expand Harsco Corp.’s access services to the North American infrastructure markets.

International Paint Taps Penta, HB Fuller

International Paint LLC, an AkzoNobel company, will leverage AkzoNobel’s current Glidden and Devoe dealer networks to supply marine and protective coatings to the Caribbean and Central America.

International Paint will distribute its protective and marine coatings products in the Caribbean and Central America.

The first distribution agreement is with Penta Paints, a subsidiary of the Ansa McAl Group, a longtime licensee of Glidden paints and Devoe protective coatings brands in Trinidad and Tobago. Under the new agreement, Penta Paints will supply International Paint’s marine and protective coatings and linings to its growing clientele in the Caribbean.

The second agreement appoints HB Fuller as distributor of International Paint’s marine and protective coatings to customers in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Panama. HB Fuller has also been a longtime licensee of the Glidden and Devoe brands throughout Central America.

‘Important Regions’

The new agreements reflect International Paint’s ongoing goal of growing market share in these regions and throughout the Americas, the company said. International Paint manufactures protective coatings technologies for the oil, gas, chemical processing, power, pulp and paper, rail, steel structure, mining and marine industries.

 “We are delighted to have the opportunity to leverage AkzoNobel’s long-term relationship with Penta Paints and HB Fuller to now include the company’s global International Paint brand,” said Martin Criado, International Paint’s Marine and Protective Coatings Manager for Mexico & Latin America.

“The two distribution companies have an excellent reputation for technical product support and customer service, which complements International Paint’s core business principles. Together, we can better serve our customers in these important regions.”

Harsco Teams Up with Irex

Harsco Corp., global provider of industrial services and engineered products, has signed an agreement with Pennsylvania-based Irex Contracting Group as a preferred supplier of scaffolding and labor services on industrial and infrastructure sector projects throughout North America.
