KMS signs distributor for Italy

Koch Membranes Systems (KMS) announced on 17 June 2011 that it had signed a distribution agreement for Italy with Univar Inc, a US global chemical distributor.

Univar, which has more than a dozen locations in Italy, will distribute the KMS range of reverse-osmosis elements used in water treatment, desalination and water reuse.

“Our strong position in the Italian market combined with KMS’ pioneering products gives us confidence that this agreement is a perfect fit,” says Cristina Lorenzetti, Univar’s supplier director, water treatment applications, for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “Water treatment is one of our key strategic sectors, and we hope that we will work together in other territories as our relationship grows.”

Univar also signed an agreement in December 2010 to be official distributor of GE water treatment products for Italy and Southern Europe.
