HORN to Partner with Borregaard

HORN has announced it was selected by Borregaard as its exclusive distributor in the Western United States for Exilva®, a new microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) suitable for large scale use. “In a mature market as ours, it is rare to see new technologies emerge that truly spark creativity and new possibilities,” said Vince Anderson, vice president, HORN Coatings and Building Materials. “Borregaard breaks through the norm with Exilva by offering a new, sustainable material that not only complements ‘green’ trends and water-based products, but delivers unique performance for new product lines. HORN’s technical sales team is thrilled with the opportunity to add Borregaard’s Exilva to our lustrous portfolio of best-in-class materials and technologies.”

“Exilva’s robust problem-solving capabilities are unlike other offerings on the market today, so the responsibility of choosing a partner in the U.S. was carefully executed,” said Peter Orizondo, business development director, Exilva America. “HORN’s industry reputation is unmatched and its market presence in the Western U.S. is key to meeting our goals for Exilva in the U.S.”
