LANXESS Expands Distributor Network for Bayferrox® Inorganic Pigments in North America

Dowd and Guild, Inc. and LV Lomas Limited expanding existing territories for pigment sales in the U.S. and Canada

LANXESS Corporation, one of the world’s largest producers of iron oxide and chromium oxide pigments, announced today that two of its North American distributors for Bayferrox inorganic pigments will expand their territories, beginning January 1, 2012. 


Dowd and Guild, Inc., currently focused on the Southwest United States, will take over additional responsibility for pigment sales in the Pacific Northwest region, to include Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.  LV Lomas Limited, the company’s current distributor in eastern Canada, will also add western Canada, including Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, to its territory.  Both distributors will sell the pigments to the coatings, plastics and specialty markets.


“With the expansion of these premier distributors’ networks, we will be even better positioned to serve our customers throughout North America with high-quality pigments and exceptional technical support that they know and expect from LANXESS,” said Roland Flindt, Head of the Inorganic Pigments Group for North America.  


In addition to Bayferrox iron oxide pigments, they will also distribute LANXESS’ Colortherm portfolio, heat-stable pigments tailor made for the plastics industry.  LANXESS’ parent company, headquarted in Germany, has been producing pigments for 85 years, and it continuously invests in capacity expansion and product innovation. This makes the specialty chemical company the most reliable partner for its customers worldwide.  Sustainability is key to success at all production sites – the synthesis sites in Germany, Brazil and China, as well as the mixing facilities – are ISO-certified and employ state-of-the art manufacturing technologies that undergo quality checks throughout the entire process to ensure outstanding quality and color consistency.


LANXESS is a leading specialty chemicals company with sales of EUR 8.8 billion in 2011 and currently around 16,800 employees in 30 countries. The company is at present represented at 49 production sites worldwide. The core business of LANXESS is the development, manufacturing and marketing of plastics, rubber, intermediates and specialty chemicals. LANXESS is a member of the leading sustainable indices Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World and FTSE4Good.
