LANXESS Receives Sherwin Williams Certified Supplier Award

Congratulations to LANXESS Corporation’s Inorganic Pigments Group (IPG) for receiving the Certified Supplier of the Year Award for 2013 from Sherwin Williams.
This annual recognition is awarded by Sherwin Williams to suppliers that have surpassed regular terms of service, inventory management and quality. LANXESS received the award in 2011 and 2009.

Sherwin Williams has been a customer of IPG for more than 30 years; however, LANXESS became a major supplier in 2005, with expanded opportunities to supply yellow iron oxides. Since 2005, Sherwin Williams has been purchasing increased volumes and the relationship has continued to grow and strengthen.

The award was presented to LANXESS at a luncheon held during the American Coatings Show in Atlanta, Ga. The luncheon was attended by Sherwin Williams and LANXESS IPG employees. Peter Baldus, Vice President - Head of Inorganic Pigments Group Americas; Joerg Hellwig, General Manager BU Inorganic Pigments; Matt Billiter, Marketing Manager Paints & Coatings North America; and Keith Papich, Sales Manager North America Inorganic Pigments, accepted the award on behalf of LANXESS.
