Hallstar Expands North American Partnership with L.V. Lomas
Specialty chemical producer Hallstar is pleased to announce an expanded partnership with leading North American distributor L.V. Lomas. As of September 1, 2017, Hallstar will transition distribution activity for several of its accounts in the United States, primarily in the Plastics, Adhesives, Sealants, and Coatings industries, to Lomas.
“Lomas’ market expertise in chemicals, ingredients, and raw materials is well-aligned with our innovative technology, and its formulation knowledge helps customers to make the most of our products,” said Damian Marshall, General Manager for Hallstar’s Industrial Division. “In past agreements, Lomas distributed on behalf of Hallstar in Canada only, so we’re excited to have them support additional accounts in the U.S.”
Under the new agreement, Lomas will offer iconic Hallstar brands such as Paraplex®, Monoplex®, Plasthall®, and TP-Series®. In addition to benefitting US customers looking for strong technical and logistics support for these products, “the transition to Lomas offers Hallstar more opportunity to focus on continuing strategic activities,” added Marshall. “We’ve worked with L.V. Lomas for many years, and we’re confident that this is the right fit for these products and accounts.”
Chicago-based Hallstar is a privately held company that produces products for the rubber, polymer, coating and personal care market. Its customer base spans 50 countries on six continents.
L.V. Lomas is one of North America’s leading distributors of chemicals and ingredients, raw materials and packaging products, and was founded in 1960 by Lloyd V. Lomas.
