Stahl appoints new agents and distributors for promotion in Finland and Eastern Europe

09 February 2016

As of January this year, Stahl has appointed two independent agents and distributors in Finland and Eastern Europe. Kari Saarinen – working for Delta E Oy – has been appointed as Stahl’s external agent and distributor for Stahl Polymers and Performance Coatings in Finland. Erika Mariassy – working for Univar Eastern Europe – has been appointed as external party to promote Stahl Polymers across Eastern Europe. Univar will take over all activities in the following countries: Poland, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Serbia, Slovenia, Ukraine, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary and Montenegro. The appointments are fully in line with Stahl’s premise: think global, act local.

As a leading company in leather chemicals, performance coatings and polymers, Stahl knows what is important to its clients. "Providing companies in Finland with the tailor-made solutions they seek is a great opportunity for me,” said Saarinen. Saarinen has a broad experience in the coating industry and is, therefore, well suited to promote Stahl Polymers in Finland. In addition, he has been working in several technical and commercial positions at Sun Chemical Finland, Flint Group Finland and Hostmann-Steinberg Suomi, among others.

Erika Mariassy will promote Stahl’s business with her local team and will be focusing on Stahl Polymers. "Stahl is the global market leader in performance coatings and they have over 50 years of experience in polymer technology. I am looking forward to show companies in our regions what possibilities Stahl’s latest solutions bring to the table.” Mariassy explained. Mariassy has many years of experience in the coatings and polymers industry and is very familiar with the market.
