Starting July 1, Quanex Building Products will serve as Bostik’s exclusive sales force for its insulating glass sealants in North America.
“We’ve worked closely with Quanex in the UK for more than 10 years, building a strong relationship based on a mutual dedication to quality, service and innovation,” says Chris Alderson, business unit director for Bostik. “We’ve found that we are better together as we are able to provide comprehensive IG solutions from spacer to sealant. This announcement is just one part of our global rebranding efforts and a reaffirmed commitment to growing our market share in North America.”
Quanex will continue to sell Bostik sealants under the Edgetherm® brand name, including Edgetherm 3500 single-part butyl rubber-based sealant, Edgetherm 3400 hot-applied desiccant matrix, Edgetherm 3100 and 3000 one-component hot-melt butyl sealants.
“When we were looking for a preferred sealant supplier we tested a number of products and Bostik’s technologies were by far the best in terms of consistency and performance,” says Larry Johnson, vice president of sales, insulating glass systems for Quanex. “We’re happy to offer this level of quality while enhancing service levels to North American customers through one, unified sales force.”
