Bodo Möller will be distributing Dow's BETAMATE™, BETALINK™, BETACLEAN™, BETAPRIME™, BETASEAL™ and BETAFOAM™ branded materials used in the transportation industry and in general vehicle construction. The move will also deepen the Bodo Möller Group's long-term partnership with DOW in the USA, Mexico and Canada.
Andreas Moser, Marketing Director Formulated Systems, describes the motivation: “The American market is very exciting for us due to its absolute size and growth perspective as well as the dynamism of E-Mobility products. Future-oriented manufacturers and suppliers are aware, that there is a high potential for innovation and the demand for modern products and services.”
Frank Haug, CEO of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group, added: “In the age of e-mobility and extreme lightweight construction, manufacturing companies from the transportation industry are faced with high demands. They are rarely able to test products for sealing, bonding or glazing themselves comprehensively. This competence lies with us as a distributor and consultant”.
