Paris-La Defense, September 18th – Safic-Alcan is excited to announce an extended distribution agreement with LANXESS for Rocima™, Kathon™, Bioban™ and other biocides in France, following LANXESS' acquisition of IFF Microbial Control (MC).

We look forward to working closely with our customers to ensure their satisfaction and success,” said Rudy Sprumont, Business Unit Director CASE, Safic-Alcan.
