Michelman has added J. Tech Sales, L.L.C., of Boca Raton, FL, to its growing network of distributors. Effective March 1, 2009, J. Tech Sales will be the exclusive distributor for Michelman's line of Michem Emulsion brand wax emulsions, and Michem Dispersion brand alkali soluble resin dispersions to the household, industrial and institutional floor care markets in the United States, Canada, Mexico, West Indies and Puerto Rico.
“The addition of J-Tech will be a great asset to our customers in the floor care market,” said Steve Ruehrwein, Commercial Manager – Michelman Chemical Specialties Group. “They have considerable experience with specialty chemicals distribution in this key market, and their team members all have exceptionally strong technical backgrounds.”
Ruehrwein went on to say, “Our customers will have the advantage of working with an entire organization that has a focus on the needs of the floor care industry. They maintain distribution centers throughout the U.S. and Caribbean which will improve Michelman product delivery times, and they offer an extended line of floor care related products and services, giving our customers full access to a wider variety of solutions.”
In support of its newest distributor, and to continually increase value to its customers, Michelman will focus its internal efforts on specialized technical service, R&D, and developing new and performance-enhanced emulsions and dispersions for the floor care market.
