Swan Chemical Inc. becomes North American distribution partner of Bolder Industries' recovered carbon black
According to the company’s recent press release, Swan Chemical Inc., a subsidiary of Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd. has now become the key North American Distribution Partner for BolderBlack® recovered carbon black (rCB) from Bolder Industries, one of the pioneers of commercialized rCB from end-of-life tires.
Bolder Industries CEO Tony Wibbeler said, “We are always looking for like-minded strategic partners who expand our customer support and service model. Swan Chemical’s parent, Thomas Swan & Co has been distributing, as well as manufacturing chemicals and advanced materials since 1926. Together, we can deliver to more customers, more efficiently so this partnership actually reduces the cost to customers.”
As a North American distribution partner within the industrial rubber goods market segment, Swan Chemical is already integrated with Bolder Industries and delivering BolderBlack® products to customers — in fact, Swan Chemical was originally a customer, putting BolderBlack® into Swan Chemical’s carbon black masterbatch, the press release says.
After looking at several potential channels that would make it easier and more efficient for customers to access specialty chemicals, Bolder Industries selected Swan Chemical Inc. as their partner. We both have tremendous overlap within the tire and rubber industry, similar growth strategies, and a common view on sustainability. Together, we both have an even better way of engaging with and developing solutions to customers, by making these products more readily available.
“We are extremely excited to have been chosen as Bolder Industries’ agent into the North America Industrial Rubber Market. From our first discussion with Tony [Wibbeler, CEO Bolder Industries] and Nate, [Murphy, CTO Bolder Industries] it was immediately clear the tremendous value that BolderBlack® rCB technology brings to the market in cost stability, a sustainable raw material and allowing customers to meet Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives or earn LEED credits This partnership reinforces the passion these two companies share, relative to sustainability and environmental responsibility. With Thomas Swan’s vision to achieve net-zero carbon by 2030, our partnership with Bolder Industries is the right thing to do for the future of our planet, said Ray Fahmy, President of US subsidiary Swan Chemical Inc.
