“We are very impressed with Univar in terms of its sales and marketing expertise, logistical capabilities and its commitment to sustainability,” said Ian Elson, Senior Vice President and General Manager Europe, Koch Membrane Systems. “KMS is pleased to be announcing this partnership with Univar and we look forward to the continued development of this relationship in the future.”
