Sicomin, a leading formulator of high performance epoxy resin systems, has agreed a distribution partnership with Aerontec, the South African composite materials supplier with head offices based in Cape Town. The arrangement is effective immediately and Sicomin products will be available throughout South Africa from July.
Customers will benefit from rapid access to Sicomin’s most advanced epoxy systems including the GreenPoxy® bio range, clear, infusion, foaming and fire retardant products.
Sicomin will initially target the boat building sectors. “We are confident Aerontec’s superb sales experience in the region combined with a prompt and reliable distribution service will appeal to many marine manufacturers”, said Philippe Marcovich, Sicomin’s President.
The South African Collaboration Incoming Trade Mission, 27th – 30th June 2017
To further strengthen Sicomin’s presence in Southern Africa and overall expansion of their global network, both companies will participate in the South African Collaboration Incoming Trade Mission.
Eleven French maritime companies, including component and boat manufacturers, will attend with the aim of generating business and investment opportunities with South African companies in the form of partnerships, joint ventures and sales.
Organised and hosted by Business France, the French Government agency, the 3 day visit will include a tour of a local shipyard and presentations from SABBEX (South African Boat builders Export Council).
