Wins new distribution deal for Neutralac SLS45
One of Lhoist’s original partners in the development of Neutralac SLS45, Tennants Distribution, has been appointed to handle the distribution of the product in the UK.
The move is seen as a natural progression. Neutralac SLS45 product manager, Derek Thompson explained: “Tennants Distribution started working with us five years ago and helped to research possible product applications. Neutralac finally became available in the UK in January 2010 and it was a natural progression to establish an exclusive distribution agreement with Tennants.”
Tennants provided the logistical capabilities to meet Lhoist’s needs. They had the right staff, attitude and industry knowledge. “This isn’t just a commodity product and Tennants understood all the complexities involved”, said Thompson.
“We recognised that Tennants was an innovative organisation that took the long term view. The company established a dedicated management structure for the project with sales staff exclusively selling Neutralac. Tennants has become an integral part of our growth plans over the next five years.
We are delighted to be able to work with Lhoist who developed Neutralac® SLS45. We are very confident this completely safe solution used for the neutralisation of acidic waste will become an important product for the future. It now gives customers who generate this type of waste, a real choice whether to use traditional, but often hazardous products, or this new innovative solution,“ said Tennants’ managing director, Andrew Mitchell.”
