Specialty chemicals distribution company supports technical service needs of suppliers and customers through infrastructure investments.

Connell Brothers has increased its infrastructure and facility investments over the last several months across the region to support the growth of its supplier and customer base in coatings & inks and other industrial markets, and its regulated businesses in food, pharmaceutical, and personal care ingredients.

These investments include:

- 20,000 square-foot storage warehouse located in Mumbai

The new warehouse utilizes new equipment to help meet ever-increasing regulations for food, pharmaceutical and personal care products (i.e. segregated storage areas).

The facility also meets compliance requirements in India, and provides employees with a safe work environment.

- Food ingredient application facility located in Sydney

Connell Brothers' food technicians can now assist customers in the formulation and development of finished products that address market challenges or meet new market trends.

Connell Brothers is fully committed to the food ingredient distribution business and the company is confident that these new technical and commercial support services will be of great value to their suppliers and customers.

- Coatings lab located in Bangkok

Connell Brothers established a coatings lab to provide enhanced technical support for paint formulation development. This high-service approach offers lab testing for their local customers' products, which shortens the time-to-market for these products.

"We want our suppliers and customers to know that we are committed to Asia-Pacific distribution, and that we add value to their businesses," said Ted Eliot, president, Connell Brothers.

Eliot continued, "Connell Brothers has had record growth in the last several years in all business segments, and these new facility investments will help us keep up with our current and growing supplier and customer base."

Connell Brothers operates an extensive network across the Asia-Pacific with a total of 37 offices across 17 countries in the region, offering local expertise, local and global relationships, and comprehensive services including supply chain management, marketing and distribution, documentation and warehousing, and regulations support.

Connell Brothers was recently named in the ICIS Top 100 distributors list in July 2012.
