How will this relationship work?
Saint-Gobain will be the exclusive distributor for LORD Corporation’s Fusor Repair Adhesives in the North American market. Fusor sales into the Aftermarket will go through Saint-Gobain. Saint-Gobain will stock all Fusor products in their DC and distributors will simply place their Fusor order along with their regular Saint-Gobain order once the official launch date is communicated. Timing and details are still being worked out, however, we ensure that the transition will be virtually transparent.
Will LORD continue to service OEM customers?
