In an emailed news release, Hexigone Inhibitors (Port Talbot, United Kingdom), a manufacturer of award-winning, patented anticorrosives, announced its partnership with First Quality Chemicals (Naucalpan, Mexico), a distribution leader of specialty chemicals in Mexico. The partnership will bring Hexigone’s products to new customers in Mexico, further expanding the company’s reach in the Americas.
With more than 20 years of experience distributing specialty chemicals in Mexico, First Quality Chemicals is known for its ability to understand the needs of its thousands of customers, and strives to be “unique, disruptive, and different”—a company ethos that aligns well with Hexigone, according to company officials.
“It’s great to expand our sales team via First Quality Chemicals,’ says Dr. Patrick Dodds, CEO of Hexigone. “We’ve already developed great relationships, and I have no doubt that our collaboration is a successful one. The Mexican coatings market is still in transition from the most commonly used corrosion inhibitors that have been banned in some other countries to new technologies. Intelli-ion will allow regional coatings [suppliers] to offer their customers a completely new way of protecting against corrosion as well as reformulating to optimize for performance, sustainability, or cost.”
“We are fully committed to providing our customers with the latest technologies and the most innovative solutions to help them achieve their goals and manufacture products that can make the world a better place,” says Jacqueline Chinas, awesome dreams and innovation leader at First Quality Chemicals. “We are sure that Intelli-ion is the perfect match for coatings manufacturers’ formulations.”
