Bayer MaterialScience stepping up activities in Russia in cooperation with ALBIS

Bayer MaterialScience is stepping up its activities in Russia by expanding its cooperation with the ALBIS Group, Hamburg. In the Russian Federation the Leverkusen-based company has now added the international distributor ALBIS to its existing partners for the distribution of the high-performance plastics Makrolon® (PC), APEC® (PC-HT), Bayblend® (PC/ABS) and Makroblend® (PC/PBT) from its polycarbonates portfolio. Russia is an attractive growth market for a multitude of industries, particularly the automotive and electrical industries. The cooperation with ALBIS is regarded as a key factor for the long-term success of Bayer MaterialScience in these growing markets.

The polycarbonate products from Bayer MaterialScience will continue to be distributed in Russia directly by Bayer International S.A. Fribourg and ZAO Bayer in Moscow. The expansion of the Eastern European business activities of Bayer MaterialScience and its affiliation Bayer International S.A. in cooperation with its long-time distribution partner, ALBIS, underscores the enormous potential offered by this region.

Bayer MaterialScience will present recent developments using Makrolon® and Bayblend® at the Interplastika trade fair from January 25-28, 2011 in Moscow.
