M. Holland Company, a North American distributor of thermoplastic resins headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois, recently announced its first expansion outside the United States and Canada with the pending formation of Grupo Solquim-M. Holland, a partnership with leading plastics and chemicals distributor Grupo Solquim of Mexico. The partnership is scheduled to be finalized by the end of June.

The partnership will comprise assets contributed by both partners, including Grupo SolquimÂ’s polymer sales and distribution capabilities. The new company will open with nearly 500 customers and a solid infrastructure that includes commercial reach throughout Mexico, all supported by warehousing, bagging lines, rail terminals, pulverizing equipment and a fleet of bulk and packaged delivery trucks. Grupo Solquim veterans Patricio Lebrija will serve as director general, and Francisco Xavier Lebrija will assume the role of director of operations.

Ed Holland, M. Holland president and chief executive officer, said plans call for expanding the commercial, technical and logistics infrastructure in Mexico and eventually into other parts of Central and South America.
