PLEXIGLAS® molding compounds: New distributor for the Italian market

Darmstadt (Germany), July 2, 2018
  • TER Plastics POLYMER GROUP to be distributor for Evonik’s PLEXIGLAS® molding compounds in Italy with group member TER ITALIA


From July 1, 2018 the new distribution partner TER ITALIA, headquartered in Milan, will market the complete portfolio of Evonik’s PLEXIGLAS® and PLEXIMID® molding compounds in Italy.

TER Plastics has been operating successfully in the plastics market for many years and offers its customers high-quality plastic products backed by expert technical service. The extensive product portfolio of PLEXIGLAS® molding compounds for all injection-molding and extrusion applications is the ideal supplement to TER ITALIA’s existing range. The collaboration with the previous distribution partner, Vamp Tech (Italy), ended on June 30, 2018.

The existing partnership with the dealer Guberti S.p.A. in the Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and Trentino-Alto Adige regions remains unaffected by the change. “With Guberti and TER ITALIA, our two distributors for the Italian market, we’re very well positioned for the future and have two partners with excellent knowledge of the market and sales expertise,” says Peter Freisler, head of Business Management Europe.

PLEXIGLAS®, Evonik’s branded polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), is the perfect solution for applications requiring exceptional brilliance and transparency, unparalleled weather resistance, and excellent surface characteristics. The main uses for these products are in medical technology, in the automotive, watch-making, and lighting industries, in optics, communication, building, and household applications
