U.S. Distributor Coverage Realigned for DuPont™ Vespel® Shapes
DuPont Engineering Polymers has restructured its authorized distribution network for DuPont™ Vespel® polyimide stock shapes in the United States.
Curbell Plastics, Inc. has been named the authorized distributor for the Western half of the United States and AIN Plastics, a division of ThyssenKrupp Materials NA, for the Eastern United States. Each is also authorized to serve customers outside of its assigned area. Both companies are long-time distributors of Vespel® shapes such as rod, bar and plaques. Professional Plastics, Fullerton, Calif., is no longer an authorized distributor of Vespel®.
Curbell Plastics has primary responsibility for customers located in states west of and including Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and the Dakotas.
