PolySource to Grow Partnership with EMS-GRIVORY America
New Opportunity to Access Specialty Nylon for Application Development
Independence, MO (August 3, 2020) – PolySource, a leading distributor of engineered resins solutions, announced an expanded partnership with EMS-GRIVORY America. The new, more extensive alignment will help both companies continue to grow in the specialty nylon market in North America.
“The EMS partnership is a perfect fit in the ‘application development’ PolySource business model,” said Grant John, President and CEO at PolySource. “The EMS product portfolio gives our technical field developers an excellent range of materials for replacing metal and developing high-strength structural applications.”
EMS-GRIVORY America has been looking to grow its specialty nylon product lines and identified PolySource as the ideal partner to help them achieve their expansion goals. Customers will now be provided with more technical resources assisting in new application developments and metal replacement with EMS specialty nylons.
“These specialty nylons require a high level of technical know-how to correctly position in demanding applications, and PolySource was identified as a distributor that was not the traditional stocking distributor handling routine transactional orders,” said Darryl Goodwin, Business Manager at EMS-GRIVORY America. “They have personnel with the technical skills required to effectively develop new applications and are an entrepreneurial organization that is motivated and versed in developing new business.”
The specialty polyamides from EMS-GRIVORY include Grivory® GV partially aromatic nylon, Grivory® HT high-temperature PPA, Grilamid® TR transparent Nylon 12 and Grilamid® L semi-crystalline nylon 12. These specialty polyamides feature excellent chemical resistance, high stiffness, dimensional stability and transparency for applications requiring high clarity and ductility, making them versatile to support several markets, including consumer goods, packaging and optics.
As the company continues to develop new business opportunities, it remains committed to providing trusted technical solutions to customers by offering a full spectrum of resins, blends and compounds. PolySource offers customers in small volume applications with a customized customer stocking program to support minimum order quantities.
