As a result of the re-orientation, CATHAY ensures an even broader market coverage. Short distances as well as rapid and flexible delivery serve the customers' workflow. The new partners are specialized in the distribution of raw materials such as pigments and additives for various coatings and plastics applications.

Strong partnerships

The new distribution structure includes the cooperation with A.R. Peißig-Dolder in Großweikersdorf, Austria. "After 20 years of working in the coatings and polymer industry, we are pleased to have won CATHAY as a strong partner", says Werner Peißig, President of the company. With this alliance CATHAY is expanding its partnership with Dolder Group, now covering also the markets in South-East Europe.

Furthermore, the pigment manufacturer newly collaborates with Unipex Solutions in Paris who will serve customers in France and Benelux countries.
