AGM Signs Exclusive Distribution Deal with Indian Partner

Specialty graphene nanoplatelet dispersions producer Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) (Cleveland, United Kingdom) has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Imkemex (Mumbai, India). According to the company, the partnership extends AGM’s commercial reach directly into the region’s liquid resins, coatings, composites, and polymers sectors.

“It is a great pleasure to be able to welcome Imkemex into AGM’s growing sales network as a technically-capable, commercially-astute distribution partner for our Genable brand in India,” says Adrian Potts, CEO. “AGM is committed to enabling the widespread application of graphene dispersions and offering competitive advantages to its partners through the development of innovative graphene-enhanced products.”

Originally formed by ICI India in 1965, Imkemex is described as growing, independent provider of distribution services for overseas chemical companies. Under the pact, the two organizations plan to collaborate on local opportunities for the application of AGM’s proprietary Genable graphene dispersion technology and facilitate wider engagement with new and existing Indian customers.

In addition to its own commercial activity in the United Kingdom and the United States, AGM has distribution agreements with local expert chemicals and coatings distributors in a growing number of export markets. As a result, AGM says it has achieved strong regional coverage for its products, providing detailed customer understanding and technical guidance for graphene’s potential use.

“We at Imkemex are delighted to be AGM’s partner of choice for India,” says Saumendra Tripathy, managing director. Imkemex’s proven expertise is to provide innovative and novel solutions fit for the Indian chemical industry, and it augurs well with AGM’s innovations with graphene-based materials to solve real-life issues and create a more sustainable world. Together, we provide state-of-the-art and sustainable solutions of chemical resistance and corrosion inhibition to the Indian coatings industry.”
