Arrow Solutions is celebrating 40 years of selling its industry-leading cleaning and maintenance chemicals in Norway by strengthening its partnership with a key distributor.
The Moira-based firm has announced an extension to its agreement with Aco Kjemi, which will see it provide more support to help increase market share for core products including Lotoxane, Delta and EcoWash Autoshine.
Backed by a significant new marketing campaign and more technical training, it is expected that the partnership will generate more than £1 million of sales over the next 12 months as the demand for safer, environmentally friendly cleaning products grows.
James Lomas, Sales Manager for Arrow Solutions commented: “Norway has always been a key territory for us, going back nearly four decades. We are reaffirming our commitment to Aco Kjemi and exploring ways where we can work even closer together to meet our customer’s requirements in the advanced engineering, energy, marine, oil and gas and transport sectors.
“There’s a lot of potential for our solutions to make a big difference to companies looking for high performance cleaning and maintenance solutions that ‘do the job’ but are also kind to the environment. This includes industrial degreasers, train wash and aircraft cleaners.”
Aco Kjemi was formed in 1976 by Tom Brunsvik and Stein Harald Iversen after they discovered a brand new product, a water-based degreaser that in many cases could replace White Spirit in the Norwegian industry.
They found ‘Superclean Concentrate’ by accident and traced it back to Arrow Solutions and this was the start of a 40-year relationship that has grown considerably ever since.
To mark the 40 year celebrations, 39 Aco Kjemi staff visited the East Midlands for a tour of Arrow Solutions’ manufacturing facility in Moira and a celebration dinner where founder Tom Brunsvik was presented with a special gift to mark the longevity of the partnership.
