Together with Foster Corporation, MedNet becomes the distributor of High Performance Polymers for Medical Applications in Europe and will supply Arkema’s Pebax® MED, Rilsan® MED, Rilsamid® MED, Rilsan® Clear MED and Kynar® MED product ranges.

From 1st July, 2022 MedNet will represent Arkema in all countries in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Based on our critical market knowledge and experience, as well as our long-standing customer relations, we can perfectly support the success of  all parties involved and provide the best possible service to our customers." comments Matthias Heinz, Managing Director at MedNet

Francois Ruas, Health & Beauty Global Market Manager at Arkema, adds: “We are extremely pleased to establish this relationship with MedNet and Foster. This distribution partnership reach and expertise in the medical market will help Arkema to successfully grow our business in EMEA, including our bio-circular Rilsan® MED polyamide 11 and our flagship Pebax® MED elastomers

Larry Johnson, President of Foster Distribution is also pleased with the expansion of existing relationships: “MedNet’s experience in the EMEA healthcare market is unmatched and they will be able to leverage that experience, with Foster’ expertise to further develop new business opportunities for Arkema healthcare products in this region. In addition, we can assure customers for Arkema’s “MED” products in the EMEA that the Foster/MedNet partnership will work together diligently to ensure an efficient transition and provide unbeaten customer service.” 

Foster and Arkema have had a long and successful relationship with regard to the marketing and distribution of Arkema’s “MED” grade products into critical medical applications in North America and Asia. Now, the reach of this partnership will extend with the addition of MedNet.
