Originally published:  25/07/2012
Univar has signed an exclusive deal with Magnesia to distribute its entire range of pharmaceutical and food products in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The deal builds on an existing exclusive distribution agreement in Hungary and includes Magnesia's range of MagGran® neutraceuticals consisting of granulated magnesium and calcium compounds typically used in pharmaceuticals, abrasives, ceramics, cosmetics, fertilisers and plastics. "Quality and service are the most important elements to the end user in the pharmaceutical and food sectors so we are very pleased to have Magnesia as part of our portfolio," says Balázs Kiss, general manager of Univar CEE South. "We are already seeing strong demand for the MagGran range within the region and are confident it will prove to be a popular feature in our portfolio."
"We have been impressed with Univar's capabilities in the Hungarian market and feel this is the right moment to expand our relationship," adds Magnesia area sales manager Angela Wolter. "Having access to customers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia through Univar's already well established local operations will give us a strong foothold in this important region which we will look to grow in future. Univar's specialist knowledge in this sector and established track record in the region will provide enhanced support and service for our customers."
