AkzoNobel has announced that it has signed a marketing and distribution agreement with Benarx Solutions AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Beerenberg Group.
Benarx manufacturers advanced insulation materials for the global oil and gas industry.
The new global distribution agreement allows AkzoNobel to combine their wet-applied fire protection portfolio with Benarx’s dry fit passive fire protection solutions for the oil and gas industry.
Gerard de Vries, Business Director North Europe, Protective Coatings, said: “I am delighted we have signed the agreement with Benarx Solutions AS. It represents a fantastic opportunity to offer more to our customers and provide innovative solutions on complex projects.
“Where conditions do not lend themselves to wet application of fire protection or traditional methods are restricted, prefabricated epoxy panel systems are the answer. Benarx’s innovative products are manufactured with our leading Chartek products which are backed by a 40 year track record, so we appreciate the quality of fire protection offered.”
Tore Angelskår, CEO Benarx Solutions, said: “We believe that the market is ready for cost-effective prefabricated solutions which saves critical construction time, provide consistent and durable quality due to industrialised manufacturing in a controlled environment. The Benarx dry fit epoxy solutions has been proven in hash environments from the arctic to the tropics and we are pleased to now be able to offer this through AkzoNobel’s global leadership in this market.”
